Ian Petts promoted to Head of Yachting & Aviation

Equiom is pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Petts to Head of Yachting & Aviation, a newly created role to drive the ongoing delivery of market leading solutions to these asset classes. Based in Monaco, Ian will lead Y&A strategy for Equiom globally and play a key role in developing solutions for superyacht and aircraft owners, operators and their advisors.

Ian Petts said of his appointment: 

‘Equiom has offices in many of the world’s leading jurisdictions, and is therefore able to offer yachting and aviation clients holistic global solutions which go far beyond asset structuring and advice. With 100 yachts and 45 aircraft under management worth more than £2.5bn combined, our clients benefit from one of the largest specialist yachting and aviation teams in the industry, spanning several jurisdictions throughout Europe and including large in-house crewing and tax teams. 

‘My priority is to ensure that our clients receive the most relevant solutions that best suit their specific needs, including choice of jurisdiction, structuring approach and service requirements. High on the agenda for 2021 will be continued Brexit assistance, temporary importations, cyber security and crew employment solutions as Covid-19 continues to disrupt our industry. I look forward to acting as a key point of contact for Equiom’s yachting and aviation solutions working together with our expert teams to deliver market leading client solutions.’

Equiom’s CEO, Mark Porter said of the appointment: 

‘We are proud to be recognised as the market leader in the Y&A sector with a heritage of continued success in building solutions designed around the client. We aim to maintain that leading position but we are not complacent. In Ian, we have a hugely enthusiastic Y&A professional with extensive experience and a diverse network which can be harnessed for our clients’ benefit. He is therefore an ideal leader for our global capability.’
