The transport sector depends critically on the use of valuable assets including infrastructure, rolling stock and systems. Good asset stewardship involves ensuring efficient deployment of such assets and maintaining them in the condition necessary to achieve contracted operational performance.
Asset stewardship can also involve long-term planning to ensure any future needs for upgrade/re-investment (including maintaining long-term market desirability or changing regulatory standards) are well understood and can be provided for in business planning.
Working with specialists from our sister technology companies around the world, our Transaction team is experienced in supporting asset owners and financiers, including leasing companies and those entering into rolling stock transactions (purchase or sale), to better understand their assets with projections of their book value. We have wide experience of different methods of asset valuation modelling for owners, buyers and sellers, including input (cost) and output (income) methods.
