Shipping containers are standardized by ISO. They are assets with a relatively low risk of becoming obsolete thanks to technological innovation. For this reason, the container leasing business is expected to generate stable profits over the medium/long term, and has been attracting attention as an attractive investment project in Europe and the U.S. since the 1980s. Amid the modal shift to container transportation and the full-scale introduction of ultra-large container ships, container demand is expected to increase further going forward.

JOLCO (Japanese Operating Lease with call option)
JOLCO is an operating lease which gives the lessee an option to purchase the asset at the end of the lease, or at some point during the lease period, at the purchase price determined at the commencement of the lease.
JOL (Japanese Operating Lease)
JOL is an operating lease funded by the equity investment from Japanese investor(s) and non-recourse debt from financial institution(s). This structure is used mainly in the aviation industry to provide airlines with 100% financing of aircraft. The lease rates are competitive and attractive for airlines. The equity investor(s) will enjoy tax benefits from the JOL structure and is exposed to the residual value risk at the end of the lease. Therefore, the JOL should be structured by the experts of aircraft leasing in order to minimize the residual value risk.
