Goodbody Stockbrokers today hosted a major Aviation Investment Seminar in Dublin, bringing together global investors and Irish aviation companies.
The event, showcased Ireland as a centre for aviation investing by connecting the CEOs of leading airlines and a key leasing company with global institutional and wealth management investors.
The Chief Executives of Aer Lingus, Ryanair, IAA, DAA and Irelandia are participating in this event, together with the CFO of Turkish airline Pegasus and the Head of Strategy from EasyJet.
Goodbody has invested heavily in the aviation sector in the past number of years and is now considered to be a leading institutional research resource on the European airline sector.
The company is currently growing its LCC franchise through coverage of Pegasus, Norwegian, and Wizzair.

Beyond airlines, Goodbody is committed making Dublin a more important centre of fundraising in this key services sector.
A spokesperson for Goodbody said, "we are delighted to organise this event in Dublin to showcase a range of important airlines and lessors to key international investment managers and help to promote Ireland as a centre for commercial aviation finance".
