Credit Agricole is expanding its business and announcing the launch of an alternative type of financing for business customers – financial leasing. As part of the service, the bank finances the purchase of assets selected by the customer: cars, minibuses, light trucks, loading and unloading equipment, agricultural machinery, etc.
The main advantage of financial leasing for customers is the ability to use assets right away, without additional collateral, and pay for them in the future. The service includes the cost of registration and insurance of leasing items, and the business chooses a convenient payment schedule.
“I am very pleased to realize that Credit Agricole has expanded the opportunities for customers despite the crisis and turbulence. The launch of financial leasing confirms the flexibility and customer focus of the bank. From now on, our business clients have alternative options for purchasing machinery and equipment: leasing and classic financing instruments. Therefore, each company can choose the most effective solution according to their needs and business model. I am thankful to our teams for another quality service in the bank's portfolio, which helps customers achieve their ambitious goals in the market!” says Larysa Bondarieva, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Credit Agricole Bank.
With the support of the Group, the bank launched the financial leasing service in a short timeframe - less than six months. The launch was held in several stages: in May-June, the bank conducted all coordination procedures with the NBU and the Group, in July-August, the service was road-tested - a pilot project for current customers of the bank was held, and since September, the bank offers this service to all its business clients.
“Autumn is the best time to renew the fleet, so we have set up all the preparatory processes to offer the financial leasing service at this time. Credit Agricole received positive feedback from our customers who used the service as part of the pilot project, we tested the effectiveness of all processes, expanded the partner network by signing agreements with leading companies in the market of equipment and machinery. Currently, we are pleased to offer businesses to appreciate all the benefits and opportunities of leasing from Credit Agricole Bank!” comments Yurii Vasylenko, Head of Leasing division of Credit Agricole Bank.
