Equipment trust certificates

Equipment trust certificates

Certificates issued by a trust that is formed to purchase an asset and lease it to a lessee. When the last of the certificates has been repaid, title and ownership of the asset transfers to the lessee.

Equipment Trust Certificate

A certificate entitling the holder to the revenue from the lease of an asset. In an equipment trust, the trust owns the asset and leases the asset to a company (which usually set up the trust). Certificate holders receive lease payments until the certificates mature, at which point ownership of the asset is transferred to the company leasing it. Rail and airline companies use equipment trust certificates in order to finance the purchase of trains and planes.
