  • who would like to finance a non-standard constellation, such as LBO, substantial  investment (Sprunginvestition), scale up, (add on-) acquisition, sublease & rental park, etc.,
  • who are also convinced that a professional presentation of the company's creditworthiness and the financing project is beneficial
  • who want to develop and efficiently implement a leasing strategy beyond the individual case 
  • who may also have had a bad experience with leasing in the past.This can be avoided by choosing the right financing partner, type of contract and, if necessary, additional agreements.
