Aircraft financier Stellwagen could borrow up to $500 million (€420m) from a group of banks to fund future growth.

The company confirmed on Thursday that a group of banks led by Morgan Stanley Asset Funding had agreed to provide Irish-based Stellwagen Investment Company with a $250 million credit facility.

Stellwagen said the five-year facility would provide it with capital to grow the assets that it has under its management.

The deal includes a feature allowing the company to increase the loan to $500 million in the future. It is expected that Stellwagen will ultimately draw down this amount.
