Founded in 2000, Friedmann Pacific Asset Management Limited (‘‘FPAM’’) is a Hong Kong-based investor and operator of aviation ventures around the world. It aims to boost cross-border investment and strengthen ties between regional, national and global economies by adding value to the global aviation value chain.
FPAM founded China’s first aircraft operating lessor China Aircraft Leasing Group Holdings Limited (“CALC”, SEHK stock code: 01848 HK) in 2006, which is currently the largest independent aircraft Lessor in China and one of the top 10 global aircraft lessors, based on the combined asset value of its fleet and order book. FPAM further extended the aviation value chain by establishing Aircraft Recycling International Limited (“ARI”) in 2014, which provides comprehensive solutions for mid to end-of-life aircraft.
In 2014, FPAM led a Chinese consortium to acquire 49.99% stake in Toulouse-Blagnac Airport (“ATB”), the largest airport in southwestern France. The transaction was the first airport privatization in France and was also the first time a Chinese consortium had purchased an overseas airport. The deal was voted “Deal of the Year 2015” at the Global Airport Development Conference 2015. FPAM teamed up with China Everbright Limited to acquire Tirana International Airport, Albania capital city’s airport in 2016.
