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.
Odile de Saivre, CEO of Société Générale Equipment Finance commented
“Various economic headwinds, including the continuous high interest rate and strong inflation environment, have led to a more careful investment attitude from companies and contributed to European leasing industry’s challenges in the second quarter and further today. Despite these obstacles, lessors showed resilience by expanding their portfolios while maintaining stable profits. Looking ahead to the remainder of 2023 and the start of 2024, business investment growth is expected to further expand supported by continuous demand. Further headwinds may come should the economy slowdown and the current very low cost of risk situation come to an end. To sustain outperformance, lessors will have to remain focused on leveraging core strengths and expertise in this evolving landscape.”
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.
