While reading these pages on the web site, you may have noticed that we like to describe Global as the correct company name as in the “Global” Asset Finance Company. This is not a frivolous label, chosen for convenience. Instead, it is a description that captures the vision, ambition, and philosophy of Global. We are a leader in our field. We finance assets throughout the world, with a multicultural customer base, from the small entrepreneur, airlines to State-owned companies, even to Governments assisting with PFI projects. We continue to expand, particularly in new markets. We are striving to achieve the leadership position in growth area’s and thereby, establish a truly global presence. We also believe in diversity and incorporating the best in all cultures. There is value in fostering the different perspectives and approaches contributed by our skilled people around the world. I am convinced that the clear focus on developing our market opportunities while concentrating on achieving greater efficiencies will enable Global to strengthen our position. And ultimately, this benefits our customers, shareholders and our people around the world.
