Leaseurope's 2014 Future Group Publication

After the huge success that came about with the launch of the Future Group Programme in 2013, Leaseurope repeated the exercise in 2014 with fifteen bright, young lessors from different geographical and functional backgrounds as to truly represent the European industry, all of whom were nominated by the heads of leasing and automotive rental companies from across Europe. While retaining the overall philosophy and spirit of continued innovation, which characterises Leaseurope’s Future Group Programme, each member of the 2014 Class was asked to come up with an innovative idea that would either harness or integrate the potential of a disruptive innovation into the leasing business. The 2014 Future Group publication showcases thirteen out of the fifteen original innovations presented by the Class in 2014. We hope it will foster debate amongst the industry and contribute to great careerfor these bright young talents!

Leaseurope's 2014 CEO Business Council Report


The CEO Business Council Report is a unique opportunity to get a glimpse into the key issues of concern for European leasing industry leaders. It provides a high-level summary of the themes that emerged from the discussions held during the 27 March CEO Business Council entitled “Delivering Service Solutions.”

Within this context, European Chief Executive Officers focused on how the industry can deliver enhanced service solutions. In particular, participants discussed what a service solution actually entails and where the true added value lies in providing such services, with many agreeing that direct relationships with customers is what will make them stand out in comparison with other institutions. Additionally, participants also exchanged ideas on whether it will be necessary for leasing companies to transform their business in order to be able to better provide customer-centric solutions. Views were mixed and the discussions revolved around whether this included just providing funding, providing both funding and services or becoming true service integrators in view of moving past delivering just services to real solutions.

Leaseurope’s 2013 Future Group Publication


In 2013, Leaseurope launched a high profile programme entitled the Future Group. Sixteen bright, young talents were tasked with coming up with innovative ideas that would revolutionise any aspect of the leasing industry. In order to encourage information exchange and the sharing of best practices amongst the wider European industry, Leaseurope decided to put together a publication that would showcase as many individual ideas that were put forward by these bright talents. The publication was released in April 2014 and puts a spotlight on ten out of the sixteen innovative ideas that were presented in the first edition of the Future Group programme. We hope that the wide variety of concepts developed by Future Group members will provide European lessors with food for thought when it comes to their own businesses.

The Use of Leasing Amongst European SMEs

In today’s climate of poor European economic growth and high government debt, we can no longer look to public spending as the main driver of the European economy. Focus has fallen on SMEs, who represent 99.8% of all European businesses and 66.9% of EU employment* to provide a sustainable economic recovery.

This report demonstrates that leasing is a vital source of investment financing for SMEs and that promotion of this market would ensure that European SMEs can invest and expand more in the future. Given the current economic climate, leasing clearly has an important role to play in helping European SMEs and, in turn the European economy, on the path to full recovery.

The report was undertaken on behalf of Leaseurope by leading economic consultancy Oxford Economics with the support of Linedata. It is based on a survey conducted in July 2011 on the use of leasing amongst European SMEs. Just under 3,000 SMEs were interviewed across 9 industrial sectors and in 8 countries (Germany, France, UK, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Poland and Sweden), which together account for 83% of total EU economic output and 78% of the European leasing market.

For more information on how to obtain the report please visit our dedicated SME report webpage.

European Leasing - a joint Leaseurope/KPMG publication - 2007

What with the strong demand for a comprehensive, easy-to-use reference tool on leasing in Europe, it was a natural step for Leaseurope, the trade association representing the European leasing and automotive rental industry and KPMG, with their highly respected and knowledgeable international network of experts on leasing taxation, to come together to produce a synopsis covering leasing market data at the same time as regulatory aspects of leasing throughout Europe.

The resulting publication is thus an overview of 25 individual European leasing markets, including market information and a review of the legal, fiscal and accounting frameworks in these countries in a comparable and easy to use electronic format.
