Both new-build rolling stock fleets as well as the disposal of existing fleets allow potential investors (i.e. infra funds) to set up a new operating lease platform which can grow into a very desirable rolling stock lessor (or ROSCO). The Apex Rail Team (before it was founded) supported the establishment of ROSCOs that turned into business worth EUR 1bn + (i.e. ELL and Railpool). Hence the aim is to continuously grow the portfolio.
The complexity is to turn a single transaction into a ROSCO type business model which relies on multiple assets, clients, markets and ongoing growth.
