2018 Leasing Life Conference & Awards: Winners Announced


The winners have now been announced for the thirteenth Leasing Life Awards, which took place at the Hilton Tallinn Park in Tallinn, Estonia on 15 November this year.

The Awards, which were held as a part of Leasing Life Conference, brought together leading figures from a variety of leasing industry backgrounds, to discuss and celebrate the industry’s progress. There was also a chance to explore the latest developments in the market in this year’s conference.

The awards challenged candidates from across Europe to share their recent successes and the achievements of the European asset finance industry in 2018. The winners across 12 categories were carefully selected by the judging panel and honoured in the ceremony hosted by CEO of Alfa – Andrew Denton, Chief Executive of IAA Advisory – Lindsay Town and Editor of Leasing Life – Brian Cantwell.

The panel of judges brought in fresh industry expertise and longstanding knowledge of Europe’s asset finance industry. The judging panel was actively involved in the evaluation process, guaranteeing the independence and transparency of the programme.

"Entries into the awards were of a very high standard this year and our judges had a hard time picking the winners. Of particular interest to the market were the innovation-based and SME lending awards," says Cantwell. "The industry is growing more and more competitive each year and the Leasing Life awards are a great way for lessors to distinguish themselves to customers in the marketplace."

"The European leasing industry is dealing with continuing challenges and uncertain political and economic circumstances. The Leasing Life conference and awards allows these businesses to come together to benchmark their progress and to add to their strategy to limit future risks."
