The Cape Town Convention and the Cayman Islands

Since the introduction of the Cape Town Convention, the number of Cayman Islands SPV's registering as a transacting user entity to participate on the international registry has continued to grow. Mark Western, Joannah Bodden Small and Phil Hinds explore the influence of Cape Town in the Cayman Islands as well as the benefits of financing aircraft through special purpose vehicles in this jurisdiction.

Please see the attached article for further information. It was first published in Airfinance Journal's Guide to Aviation Lawyers in September 2010.
