EIF Working Paper 2012/15 – The importance of leasing for SME finance

    Release date: 22 August 2012

Research & Market Analysis (RMA) has the pleasure to present "The importance of leasing for SMEs”, n.15 of EIF's Working Paper Series.

This paper puts a spotlight on the importance of leasing as integral part of the tool-set for SME finance, also against the background of market weaknesses for SME lending. It explains the mechanics and logic of SME leasing and provides latest available market information. Furthermore, the paper explains in the form of three short case studies how SME leasing can be supported via credit enhancement/guarantee techniques.

The EIF Working Paper Series has been designed to make available to a wider readership selected topics and studies in relation to EIF´s business. The Working Papers are edited by EIF´s RMA. They are typically authored or co-authored by EIF staff and are usually published only electronically.
