DEREK SOPER, FOUNDER, IAA-ADVISORY, INTERNATIONAL ADVISORY ASSOCIATES
For most of my 58 years in the industry I have had the task of starting and building new companies in many parts of the World, for a variety of financial institutions. Not the easiest of tasks in the initial years, when there was little information available on local practises, laws, taxation rules and in some countries not even the start of a leasing industry.
The introduction of the World Leasing Yearbook gave to the budding industry a background summary of many varied country views on local practices as they were developed. More than that, it also enabled a huge selection of inter-country introductions. Not only were these hugely helpful, but were also the start of many friendships, many of which still survive today.
I recommend it as a ‘read’ to anyone in the industry, whichever country they reside in and whatever state of development they think their company is at.
MUHAMMAD SAMIULLAH, SECRETARY GENERAL, NBFI & MODARABA ASSOCIATION OF PAKISTAN
Leasing is a growing and active component of the financial sector in Pakistan with which I have been associated for over the last decade. Having been exposed to local and global developments, I must say that the World Leasing Yearbook is a comprehensive and unique publication which provides authentic data and captures significant developments in the leasing field. To me, the most important section of the book is “Country Reviews” through which a reader is updated with developments in different jurisdictions in order to capture the overall scenario of global developments, taking place throughout the world.
The 40th Anniversary Edition – its contents and graphical presentation – has made it a complete and useful reference book.
MICHAEL ROTHE, PRESIDENT & CEO, CANADIAN FINANCE & LEASING ASSOCIATION
The Canadian Finance and Leasing Association has been an active contributor to the World Leasing Yearbook since its inception. Throughout our long partnership we have found the World Leasing Yearbook to be an excellent source of information and market data to benchmark ourselves against.
More significantly, those companies looking to enter the Canadian market use the World Leasing Yearbook as the perfect starting point towards informing that decision. The World Leasing Yearbook puts all the world’s leasing markets into the palm of your hands.
RAFAEL CASTILLO-TRIANA, CEO, THE ALTA GROUP – LATIN AMERICAN REGION (LAR)
I have been following the World Leasing Yearbook for over 30 years. It has proven to be the best source of strategic intelligence for the equipment leasing and financing industry in the Emerging Markets where I have been practising. The information that the World Leasing Yearbook has been continuously providing about industries in several countries, the dynamics of the markets, laws, regulations, tax treatment and accounting, together with technology available for the business is something that cannot be found elsewhere and that adds a lot of value to managers and investors in the equipment leasing industry.
DR. VICTOR D. GAZMAN, PROFESSOR, NATIONAL RESEARCH UNIVERSITY – HIGHER SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS (MOSCOW)
For a quarter of a century we have been doing research on leasing. The World Leasing Yearbook publishes the most interesting and important contributions to the understanding of the theory, practice, legislation, taxation and statistics on the international leasing industry. I believe that it is one of the most useful and reliable information sources on leasing which is available in the market.
CHRIS BIGGS, MANAGING DIRECTOR, THETA FINANCIAL REPORTING
The World Leasing Yearbookis a valuable and unique source of information about the complex industry to professional advisors, lessees and lessors. Whether its country specific issues or cross border considerations, the Yearbook has become the reference material of choice for understanding country and market specific issues.
DAVID MAXWELL, DIRECTOR, CLASSIC TECHNOLOGY
As a key adviser in the area of accounting and evaluation issues relating to asset finance and leasing, I find the World Leasing Yearbook an invaluable source for keeping me up-to-date on what is happening in different territories around the world.
GREGORY YOVICH, ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR, BANK OF NEW ZEALAND STRUCTURED ASSET FINANCE
In my experience and industry discussions the World Leasing Yearbook is recognised as a fantastic resource for lessors, lessees and other professionals. The Yearbook ensures you are constantly up to date with issues and developments occurring within the industry globally as well as jurisdictions you may be looking to transact in.
