Sustainable Aviation Finance Requires Capital
Modernizing fleets is a key component of enabling the sustainable growth of the aviation sector, which is critical for the global economy and individual freedom to travel.
Beyond aircraft leasing, the sector is shaping up to offer unique opportunities in the transition finance space. Integral to this narrative is the opportunity to further the adoption of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), highlighting Hong Kong’s pivotal role as an aviation logistics hub and its emerging focus on aviation finance. SAF, derived from sustainable sources, offers up to an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional jet fuels, presenting a pragmatic solution to the environmental challenges faced by the aviation industry.
The shift towards SAF not only addresses the urgent need for sustainable practices within the aviation sector but also opens new doors for investment. As infrastructure and technology surrounding SAF continue to evolve, there emerges a compelling case for the aviation sector as an investable asset class, ripe with opportunities for transformative growth.
The Role of Hong Kong

The Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion, Mr. Charles Ng, said, “We are happy to see that EVIDENT, an innovative fintech company, has chosen Hong Kong to set up its global headquarters. It shows confidence not only in Hong Kong’s vibrant fintech ecosystem but also in our robust financial market prospects and regulatory regime.”
Florian Spiegl added, “Hong Kong stands as a preeminent international financial hub, continually drawing global investors. With its storied history, strong legal foundation, government support for innovation, and an efficient tax regime, it also offers one of the most advanced digital assets licensing and regulatory frameworks. This city is the ideal setting for us to bridge the gap between issuers and investors through our innovative digital investment structures.”
