The Editor’s Award 2020 at the Leasing Life prize-giving virtual event went to Société Générale Equipment Finance.

Here’s why:

This lessor was founded in 1924 with the creation of a small bank called  “Société Auxiliaire de Crédit” setting out to support partners and clients in transport, construction and agricultural equipment.

Over the years it has grown by creating businesses and acquiring various specialised financing companies in France and abroad to become a global and European powerhouse with over 2,500 employees, spread across 31 countries managing a portfolio of over 26 billion Euros in 2019.
