Portfolio Administration, within Portfolio Management, manages our owned assets as well as assets on behalf of third-party clients.
Our ultimate goal is to maximize the value of these portfolios. Our equipment management and contract administration groups constantly monitor the portfolios seeking to enhance value through actions including asset bundling and sales to a strategic buyer, proactive end-of-lease negotiations, or the traditional back-office functions, such as administration, accounting and tax.
Our asset focus differentiates GATX’s portfolio administration services from traditional lease and loan servicers. We manage single transactions or entire portfolios of transactions composed of diverse structures and specialized assets, including power generation equipment, rail equipment and aircraft. In each case, our equipment group applies skills in equipment valuation, negotiation, appraisal management and asset remarketing to optimize the outcome of lease-end negotiations for both our owned and managed portfolios.
