Bynx - Asset Finance Pricing Review - Canada: rocky road ahead?

Jun 13, 2019

      AVAILABLE NOW, FREE OF CHARGE Paul Bennett, director of international business development at Autofutura outlines the ways in which consumers and their ready acceptance of technology, are driving change in the auto finance market. While this is proving highly disruptive to the normal financing process, the change offers opportunities for lenders to get closer to consumers, and to pioneer new ways to streamline the finance lifecycle. Our lead article offers an overview of Canada. Tax regulations mean that the company car market is markedly different from other country models, while the large distances many drivers cover mean electric vehicle take up has been slow to gain traction. Grassroots populist movements are becoming increasingly vocal over issues such as climate change and our use of the Earth's resources, with inevitable questions raised over the use of cars. Tougher emission regulations and a drop in consumer confidence are having a noticeable impact on new vehicle sales. The latest stats from Experteye’s European Leasing Index Report.   CONTRIBUTIONS FROM   Paul Bennett, director of international business development, Autofutura; Peter Birks, president, Auto Financial Group (AFG) Canada; Bill Dost, group chief executive, DND Finance; Dennis DesRosiers, Owner, DesRosiers;

For businesses, this means significant change in the coming years, as many countries move towards a zero-carbon economy, where there is less reliance on fossil fuels and a greater focus on sustainable ways of doing business. A new whitepaper from leading IT services and software company Tieto provides a vision of the future as companies move away from the historic business model of ‘take-make-waste’ to a new circular economy, where the life of assets is extended through greater utilisation, reuse and recycling.
