Dublin, September 17, 2015 – Amentum Capital Limited, the Dublin-based commercial aircraft management company, has been renamed FPG Amentum Limited (‘FPG Amentum’) as of 26 August 2015. Today FPG Amentum formally launches its new brand identity.
The name change and rebranding reflects the closer integration of FPG Amentum into the FPG group following the change in ownership. In May 2015 Financial Products Group Co., Ltd. (‘FPG’ – 7148:JP) had increased its shareholding in FPG Amentum from 25% to 75% and FPG Asset & Investment Management BV (‘FPG AIM’) had acquired 5% of FPG Amentum’s share capital.
Hisanaga Tanimura, President and CEO of FPG comments: “FPG Amentum is an important part of FPG’s strategy to develop, originate and manage innovative aircraft investments for the Japanese market. We are delighted that the close integration of our Dublin-based subsidiary is now also reflected in its name. Comprehensive asset management capabilities are key to successful aircraft investments and with the renamed FPG Amentum we send a clear signal to our customers, suppliers and business partners that FPG provides these services with in-house resources and is committed to the aircraft investment space for the long run.”
Martin Bouzaima, CEO of FPG Amentum adds: “We are delighted to rebrand as FPG Amentum today. Our new name shows our close integration into the FPG group, a strong partner that is committed to further developing and growing our successful lessor platform. We are also keeping ‘Amentum’ as part of our corporate name. With the 10th anniversary of our company this year, Amentum is a well-established name in the airline, operating lessor, and aircraft investor communities.”
