The Leaseurope Index Quarterly survey tracks aggregate European level financial performance indicators four times per year, providing an up-to-date look at the financial health of the leasing sector in Europe.
In addition to the regular quarterly report, Leaseurope publishes a more detailed supplement, namely the Segment Survey. This annual report shows aggregate financial KPI ratios for each of four asset types, namely equipment, real estate, passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

“Regardless of the persistent uncertainties, 2021 marked a significant recovery for the European leasing sector with solid performances in financial KPIs observed throughout the year. Particularly, European lessors have managed to strengthen their income and portfolio, with the sizable releasing of loan loss provisions. This year will present unprecedented challenges for firms across Europe due to higher inflationary pressures, driven by soaring energy prices and supply chain disruptions. Although the near-term outlook for business investment remains subdued, what is clear is the stronger need to invest in green and digital technologies, and we will stand ready to assist European firms of all sizes through their transitions.”
The Leaseurope Index is the only survey that tracks trends in key performance indicators for the leasing sector at European level. A representative sample of large pan-European leasing companies report their figures for each indicator to Leaseurope, which aggregates the results on a confidential basis. Due to the aggregate nature, no inferences can be made about any individual company’s performance based on published data. The sample represents a significant share of the total European leasing market and is broadly representitive in terms of geographic and asset coverage, including general leasing companies, automotive lessors, captive equipment vendors etc.
