These are exciting times in the commercial equipment leasing and finance industry. 2019 will be filled with new opportunities for well-positioned participants. The industry is strong; portfolios continue to perform exceptionally well by historical standards, new business activity continues to grow for participants that offer significant value, the capital markets remain intrigued by the opportunities that continue to develop in the C & I arena, the industry is attracting the next generation of professionals, and technological advancements are allowing the industry to significantly enhance the client's financing and leasing experience.
There are also warning signs on the horizon that savvy management teams are closely monitoring: rising interest rate pressures, increased competition, technological disruption, political uncertainties, and market volatility.
The best executive teams build platforms to withstand multiple challenges. They continue to build quality assets for all economies, because they anticipate change, they proactively adjust to new conditions, and they are well-positioned to turn challenges into opportunities. Wheeler Business Consulting is working with multiple executive teams (independents, captives, and banks) to ensure they are properly positioned for growth, they are improving their efficiency ratios, and they have the capacity to positively react to changes in the commercial equipment leasing and finance industry. My comprehensive knowledge and perspective of the industry complements a management team's internal knowledge of their specific markets and products. By working together, we create strategies and business plans that allow organizations to reach the next level of success and to turn warning signs into new opportunities.
