New Research from the Foundation!
Investment in Equipment and Software Expected to Reach 2.7% in 2016
Earlier this week the Foundation released the Q2 update to the 2016 Equipment Leasing & Finance U.S. Economic Outlook.  This popular report provides a comprehensive analysis on key trends, and various industry and external factors likely to impact the $1 trillion equipment finance industry. 

The latest topical study published by the Foundation dives into the dynamics of the lender finance marketplace in a post-financial crisis world.  The study also determines whether banks' appetite to be both a lender and participant in equipment finance business has changed since the 2008 crisis.  It also reviews the implications for the equipment finance industry.

2016 Industry Future Council Report
This year the Foundation hosted the 36th annual Industry Future Council Meeting.  Industry leaders spent two days discussing current issues, future trends and the outlook for the future of the industry.  This report serves as a guidebook to be used by industry leaders as they undertake their own strategic planning. 

Applied Economics Handbook
In today's fast-paced world, business leaders require actionable, forward-looking intelligence to make strategic decisions.  This handbook will summarize which economic indicators are relevant to leaders in the equipment leasing and finance industry.  It also will provide insights on how to leverage economic data and tools published by the Foundation to make better business decisions.
