The Leasing Foundation Third Annual Conference, sponsored and hosted by Siemens Financial Services, is this year focusing on the challenge of sustaining the leasing and asset finance industry. At a time of disruption in the economic environment, and when emerging technologies and new business models are changing the nature of business, the leasing and asset finance industry faces the challenge of building a sustainable future. Creating a pipeline of talent, retaining and developing the brightest people, creating frameworks for innovation that can weather the macroeconomic storms of the next decade, identifying technologies that can support and drive new business propositions, and finding a place in the minds of government, business and society are some of the key challenges.
