“It is very encouraging that profitability is increasing without requiring the deployment of additional capital – this has been achieved through higher revenues, improved cost efficiency and prudent risk management. I also believe this improved profitability demonstrates that our clients are increasingly recognising the value which our products provide”.
He continued “these results show that the leasing industry is becoming smarter. While there is always potential to improve performance further, the industry is clearly well positioned to deliver attractive and sustainable returns for shareholders”.

Commenting on the results of the June 2017 Business Confidence Survey, Invigors EMEA Partner Richard Ryan said, “This latest Business Confidence Survey suggests that the European leasing industry should enjoy another good year in 2017. Growth in new business is predicted to remain strong for the remainder of the year, while expectations on the other KPIs support a generally improving trend. Recent elections across Europe do not appear to have dented sentiment in the European leasing market, which is driven by increasing economic growth and continued access to liquidity. This seems likely to continue for the immediate future as economic growth in most European countries is forecast to further strengthen.”

Participants are asked to provide their expectations for the coming 6 months.
