The US and Canada both have strong bases for lending growth

The US and Canada both have strong bases for lending growth When considering the equipment finance and leasing markets in North America it is tempting to concentrate solely on the US – it is, after all, the dominant global economy and the size of its leasing market is by some way the world’s largest. As can be seen below, the US market continues to lead the way out of recession. Confidence levels among US executives are at their highest for four years and business volumes have maintained their year-on-year upward momentum. However, the asset finance and leasing market in Canada cannot simply be viewed through the same lens as the US. Although, like the overall economy, it is very closely linked with that of the US and naturally suffered a decline following the financial crisis, this was not as serious as in many markets and the figures below show it recovered strongly.
