BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions has chosen Ritchie Bros Asset Solutions to help manage its international asset valuation and management workflows, the two said in a statement. 

“It is key for us to be able to estimate the value of the equipment we finance so we can include accurate residual values in our contracts and offer more attractive solutions to our customers,” said Pierre Pavec, asset management and circular economy manager at BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions. 

“With Ritchie Bros Asset Solutions’ asset valuation curves, finance calculator, and Mascus’ row listings data, we’re able to refine our estimation models on all the equipment we finance and set up financing programs that meet the needs of our clients and partners.”
