New York Programme

January 2006 Intake


Paul has worked in the aviation finance industry following on from his placement with RBS Aviation Capital in New York, and is currently launching an industry website called www.flyfunder.com.

Paul goes on to explain: "It is a site that matches the buyers of Business Jets and Helicopters with aviation-specialist financiers and takes a small commission for the introduction. The aim is to fill a communication void that exists between buyers (who can be corporate institutions, governments or individuals) and financiers (like myself). Currently it is very difficult for buyers to find all of their options and get the best deal and for financiers to find deal leads in a market currently dominated by word of mouth recommendations and referrals. We are excited about the product launch as it is a completely new concept in our industry."
