Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Leasing Business

Based on our recognition of rising air traffic demand led by growth in emerging economy countries, Marubeni entered the aircraft leasing business in 2010 and the engine leasing business in 2011. In 2013, Marubeni took a stake in Aircastle Ltd., one of the world’s major aircraft leasing companies, and in 2020, Marubeni completed full acquisition of the company by acquiring all of its shares together with Mizuho Leasing.
Those decisions were based on a wide range of accumulated knowledge and experience regarding aviation industries, from sales and marketing to aftermarket solutions.

We provide the best solutions to meet our clients’ financial needs with our extensive product lineup. At the end of March 2019, we entered into a strategic alliance with Mizuho Leasing Company and completed a capital restructuring of Mizuho Marubeni Leasing (formerly MG Leasing Corporation) to make it a joint business with Mizuho Leasing Company. Moving forward, in a collaboration with Mizuho Leasing Company, we will further promote Mizuho Marubeni Leasing presence as a Marubeni Group captive leasing company and expand its business domain in overseas markets.

Corporate Investment and Fund Management Business

As an early pioneer of Japanese domestic private equity funds, this Division’s strength lies in its ability to use investment knowledge and experience gained over more than 20 years, as well as the combined power of the Marubeni Group, in order to provide business assistance to investees, and thus develop corporate investment funds. Additionally, the Division is also proactively involved in the management of infrastructure funds and other new types of funds both in Japan and abroad. Also, the Division is proactively involved in the operation of new funds, including the listed Japan Infrastructure Fund Investment Corporation.
