Quarterly survey

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. 

Segment survey

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.


View from the industry

Andy Hart, CEO Investec Asset Finance

“Following an impressive recovery seen in Q2 2021, the European leasing industry continued to perform solidly in the third quarter with financial indicators improving. The provision of loan losses has been dropping for three consecutive quarters over the course of this year. Despite some remaining uncertainty and risks, the European Commission projects the European economy will keep expanding for the rest of the year and going into 2022 on the back of an improved labour market, favourable financing conditions and the full deployment of the Recovery and Resilience Fund. However, the surge in energy prices may have a knock-on impact on business investments, setting the stage for potentially challenging market dynamics going forward. Therefore, it will be essential for European lessors to maximise our internal strengths, minimize the impact of external challenges, and continue to support European businesses, especially SMEs, during the shifting economic environment.”

About the Leaseurope Index

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.
