Questions about corporate trusts and agency appointments for transportation, equipment and real estate? UMB has answers.

    An owner trust is a trust established for equity or beneficial ownership assets. In the aviation industry, owner trusts are increasingly the financial tool of choice for aircraft leasing companies wanting to optimize their ownership and financing structures.

    Specifically then, an Irish owner trust is an owner trust established in Ireland to cover the ever-changing business needs of the airline industry. Dublin, Ireland, is the international economic center for aircraft leasing transactions. These specialty Irish owner trusts navigate the environmental, economic and regulatory considerations involved in complex aviation leasing transactions.

    To support this ever-changing industry, UMB operates UMBF Trust and Agency Services (Ireland) Limited in Dublin. You can read more about how UMB trust and agency solutions help our clients navigate the continued strong demand for aviation trust services.

    A corporate bond trustee is a financial institution that is granted trust powers, such as a commercial bank or trust company. This entity, in turn, has a duty to the bond issuer to enforce the terms of a bond indenture. A trustee sees that bond interest payments and principal repayments are made as scheduled and protects the interests of the bondholders if the issuer defaults.

    An escrow agent is a person or entity that holds property in trust for a third party while a transaction is finalized or a disagreement is resolved. Typically, a financial institution provides the escrow agent services and can hold assets, invest funds, handle tax reporting and manage distributions on behalf of the organization it represents.

    An ideal escrow agent has a comprehensive team of advisors working on behalf of its client. This includes in-house attorneys and a specialized relationship managers experienced in a broad range of corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, capital raise or litigation settlements.
