More than ever, companies in Europe’s recovering economies need funding for equipment purchases, and those in a position to provide asset finance stand to prosper greatly from the demand in the market.
Nevertheless, regulatory headwinds, a new culture of banking and a world that has long ago gotten used to capital scarcity all present their own challenges to lenders.
At this year’s Leasing Life conference, C-level industry leaders will take a look at what type of companies stand to reap the rewards of this dynamic environment, and what steps prosperous players have taken to adapt to the ‘new normal’.
The first session of the day will see presenters evaluate the future balance of power between manufacturers and banks based on past and present data, and discuss the types of financial institutions that may look to step into the market alongside them, before examining the significance of peer-to-peer lending for the asset finance market.
Session two, focusing on banks, will look at the technological and organisational challenges being faced by asset finance providers in the banking world as they move to work more closely with their colleagues in commercial lending, before examining recent enthusiasm in the areas of securitisation and syndication.
Session three will look at asset finance in the context of the wider world, asking what shared DNA the industry has with asset management, what it can learn from industries way outside of day-to-day visibility, and how the hectic pace of technological change can aid asset finance providers in developing their sales proposition.
The conference will close with a session tackling arguably the industry’s most pressing challenge – the talent gap facing the business as it looks to secure a new generation of experts, and the lack of diversity in staff that inhibits it from engaging fully with the modern world.
