Seventy-two percent (72%) of U.S. companies use some form of financing when acquiring equipment. A long-term lease transaction is the functional equivalent of a loan. Community banks can profit from a focus on equipment lease financing, particularly in areas with heavy agricultural, commercial or industrial activities. This webinar focuses on the many aspects of equipment lease financing, from structure and documentation to monitoring and administration. It will also include a review of the OCC Lease Financing Guidelines. Both new and experienced equipment lease financing lenders will find this program to be informative and useful.
