As 2021 draws to an end it’s a time to reflect on the events of the past year, as well as look to the future. I think we’ll all agree that 2021 hasn’t been the smoothest of years, with several bumps in the road to economic recovery caused by the lingering impact of the pandemic. Even as I write, the impact is yet again being felt across Europe as restrictions are reintroduced in many areas. But as always, with adversity comes opportunity, and 2021 has provided the asset finance industry the chance to look towards the future and plan, with renewed vigour, for a greener and more sustainable recovery.

Our latest newsletter looks into the asset finance industry’s concerns following the recent revelation of major fraud at Arena Television and discusses developing an early warning system. We also look at the opportunities to build back greener that the pandemic has provided the asset finance industry. We investigate how digitalisation and automation, coupled with a personal approach to customer service, are essential to aiding the recovery. We also look at how Acquis is using Big Data to bring you timely management information and portfolio performance analysis. And I’m delighted to share with you our new product brands which help differentiate our market leading insurance solutions for leased equipment.

If you’d like further information on any of the topics, please contact your Client Management team who is, as always, on hand to answer any questions you may have.

So it’s just left for me to wish you all a Merry Christmas and let’s hope that 2022 brings prosperity and stability for all.

Best wishes,
