Independent, Third-Party Service To Include Financial And Risk Modeling
BizAv industry veterans Jeff Habib and Cass Anderson have officially launched the Intercontinental Aircraft Group, LLC (“IAG”). Created in 2012 and headquartered in Manhattan, IAG provides independent, third party acquisition and advisory services to buyers and owners of business jets.
IAG’s services include aircraft needs assessment and mission profile analysis, financial comparison and optimization, aircraft technical comparison, market analysis, aircraft valuation and contract negotiation. IAG says it has developed a proprietary methodology based heavily on the use of Monte Carlo risk modeling simulation to optimize purchase decisions, aircraft selection, fleet planning and asset management.
“Given the state of the business jet market since the financial troubles of 2008, buyers today are more sensitive then ever to downside risk from their aviation investments," said Jeff Habib, co-founder and managing partner of IAG. "Principals and flight departments alike are tired of shocks and surprises - they want to understand all the possible outcomes and scenarios up front.”
IAG’s most recent projects include the successful acquisition of a Gulfstream G450, the creation and implementation of a risk adjusted fleet management program for a Fortune 500 company and the selection of an aircraft management company for a Gulfstream G550.
Growth plans for 2013 include establishing an aircraft brokerage component to offer the full spectrum of transactional and advisory services to its clients.
