McLagan's global Aviation Finance survey covers professionals from banks and independent aircraft leasing companies. The survey provides data across six functions including executive management, legal, marketing, portfolio management, risk, and technical. Data is reported by function from manager, senior, intermediate, and junior levels. The survey is run on a global basis with regional/country breakouts where available. Survey participants include eight of the top ten aircraft lessors.
While much attention is appropriately focused on the "how much" question in compensation studies, there is great value in understanding how pay is delivered, when it is to be delivered, and dozens of other policy and market practice questions. We run a supplemental market practice study for Aviation Finance that covers the following:
- Business and Financial Metrics (revenue, comp & benefits expense, total fleet value, headcount, etc.)
- Annual Incentive Plan Design & Funding (plan type, performance measures, targets, deferral program, etc.)
