Ian Robertson of The Alta Group’s Invigors to Discuss Strategies At 8th China Leasing Summit June 10-12 in Beijing

China’s equipment leasing and asset finance industry could lead the world in originations within the next two years, fueled in part by the country’s emphasis on circular economic models, said Ian Robertson of The Alta Group, who will address the 8th China Leasing Summit in Beijing on 10-12 June (http://duxes-events.com/lease15/). Robertson will discuss how lessors, lessees, and manufacturers can benefit from operating leasing in China, through innovative and effective residual management that optimises profitability and minimises risks.  

Organised by Duxes Business Consulting, Inc., the summit promises to be one of the most important equipment leasing and financing events on the global calendar, conference organizers said.   Robertson heads the Invigors Asset Management practice in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for Alta, which is the leading global consultancy dedicated exclusively to the business of equipment leasing and asset finance.  Alta’s worldwide offices include multiple locations in China.  

“As China continues to move forward in terms of its economic performance, with customer and corporate spending propelling this growth, new demands are being placed on those offering equipment financing solutions.  This in turn means that business models need to adapt and evolve, resulting in innovation becoming one of the keys to success in this new environment,” Robertson noted.  

“Given that China is forecast to become the world’s largest leasing market in terms of originations within the next two years, this is a market that simply can’t be ignored.  Challenges surely exist within this market, but as we’ve seen in other geographies, operating leasing is a natural evolutionary step and one that, if well executed, can provide compelling advantages.  With China’s emphasis on circular economic models with their focus on re-use of resources and remanufacturing, this is also a very natural fit with the operating lease product and residual based solutions.”
