United Kingdom Asset & Auto Finance Country Survey 2017

Mar 30, 2017

   AVAILABLE NOW, FREE OF CHARGE The asset finance market continued to grow in 2016, in spite of fears of what might happen in the aftermath of the vote to leave the EU and shows little sign of slowing. There are genuine concerns about the potential effects of Brexit, even though the UK won’t be exiting the EU until 2019. Tariff and barrier-free trade is critical to the future UK automotive production post Brexit as the majority of components used in UK-built vehicles come from Europe. Concerns expressed in the industry include the potential impact of Brexit on interest rates, currency exchange rates and the effect this could have on pricing and inflation.  Auto finance deals are expected to remain very competitive. Dealers need to ensure customers understand the benefits of finance. Keeping up with developments in finance technology is paramount.   INCLUDES LEADERS' INSIGHTS                Rob Abrahams, Head of Market Development, carwow Chris Bosworth, Director of Strategy, Close Brothers Motor Finance Dean Bowkett, Managing Director, Bowkett Auto Consulting Austin Collins, Managing Director, BuyaCar.co.uk Adrian Dally, Head of Motor Finance, Finance & Leasing Association Sébastien Duval, CEO, AUTOi David Hosking, CEO, Tusker Richard Jones, Managing Director, Black Horse Gerry Keaney, Chief Executive, BVRLA Alastair Kendrick, independent company car taxation consultant Jon Lawes, Managing Director, Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions Rupert Pontin, Director of Valuations, Glass’s Kit Wisdom, Head of Technical Services, Alphabet GB Limited

Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific Asset & Auto Finance Country Survey 2017

May 15, 2017

  AVAILABLE NOW, FREE OF CHARGE This is a hugely diverse region with national economies at different stages of development. Historic indicators suggest others are on the brink of exciting growth. In India, oil demand is where China’s was in 2002, while the country’s GDP per capita in 2015 was the same as China’s in 2005. If India were to follow the same economic trajectory as China in the next 10 years, the business potential would be enormous. China is an intoxicating prospect for lenders - 250 million people in China possess a driving license, but only 180 million own a car. In Australia, concerns about the global economy and fears of a higher exchange rate are dampening the market, with equipment finance up just 1.8% in 2016, although fleet leasing achieved a 21% growth. In the Republic of Korea and Japan, concerns over the US announcement that it is reviewing its free trade agreement with Korea have cast a shadow over this year’s prospects. Although, Sri Lanka is tipped for positive growth alongside a number of the smaller economies in Asia Pacific.
