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.

“While 2020 presented significant challenges for businesses across Europe, the leasing industry showed remarkable resilience in funding assets essential to support the European economy. Particularly, European lessors have managed to stabilise operating expenses, with their income and portfolio experiencing only single-digit declines. Despite accommodative policies and recovery packages, the brighter economic outlook for 2021 remains highly uncertain, driven by the evolution of the pandemic and the success of mass vaccinations. Although business investment is expected to recover at a slower pace, we will continue leveraging our strengths to provide European firms of all sizes with the support needed to speed up their recovery.”
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.
