What is a Special Purpose Vehicle?

  1. 1. WHAT IS A SPECIAL PURPOSE VEHICLE (“SPV”)? An SPV is an entity set up to participate in a transaction. It usually has one specific objective. In the Cayman Islands an SPV can either be a Company, Trust, or Partnership. The vehicle most commonly used is the Company. How can an SPV be used? Although there are many uses for an SPV, a common area is in a cross border lease transaction. These structures can be used in the financing of any big ticket assets, such as airplanes, trains, buses, industrial facilities or communication equipment.

The asset is then ultimately leased to the end user of the assets, through a number of leasing arrangements.
