    Transport – Sector focus

    Given the fact that the UK transport sector continues to be influenced heavily by the political hue of the government, the actions of the new coalition are likely to be watched with interest by the major industry players.

     
    With green issues at the fore and a significant budget deficit, the government’s next steps are likely to throw up both challenges and opportunities for transport groups across the UK. Add volatile fuel prices, a severe global recession and a liquidity crisis in the banking market to the mix and it's clear why clients have valued the sector focus and relationship ethos offered by Lloyds Banking Group.

     
    Forging a route to the future 

     
    Our sector focus allows us to anticipate the issues faced by clients, while our relationship approach ensures consistency in difficult times. In addition, we have the products necessary to provide solutions to key issues. We have helped clients to protect themselves against rises in fuel costs, to access non-bank funding sources in the capital markets and have acted as a trusted partner in the provision of asset finance structures to facilitate capital expenditure.

     
    The main focus for my team over the next few months will be helping clients to continue to invest in their growth plans by purchasing newer, more efficient bus and rail assets. In addition, we’ll be engaging with clients on capital structure discussions as they look to position themselves for growth in 2010 and beyond.
