Deutsche Bank appointed Qualified Intermediary on Alamo auto lease like-kind exchange program

Deutsche Bank today announced it has been appointed as Qualified Intermediary (QI) on Alamo Financing LP like-kind exchange program.

A like-kind exchange is known as a 1031 exchange, referring to section 1031 in the Internal Revenue Code. A like-kind exchange is a way of deferring capital gains taxes by reinvesting proceeds from a sale into a like-kind asset. This structure is frequently used in the automotive, aircraft, equipment and real estate industries. In accordance with section 1031 a taxpayer must appoint a Qualified Intermediary on such transactions in order to appropriately comply with the tax code.

Kevin Plein, Managing Director within Deutsche Bank’s Global Transaction Banking (GTB) division said, "We are pleased to have been selected by Alamo for our high quality Qualified Intermediary solution and welcome Alamo as a like-kind exchange client.”

Deutsche Bank is a leader in providing Qualified Intermediary (QI) services for like-kind exchange programs. It is a regulated financial institution which holds like-kind exchange assets in segregated trust accounts for added client security.
