Europe’s biggest asset finance providers are revealed today in the new Asset Finance Europe 50, which is now available to download.

The 2022 edition, sponsored by Alfa, reveals that total business equipment and vehicle lease receivables of the 50 largest companies were €322 billion, a rise of around 1.3%, as the industry continued to face unprecedented disruption in Europe following the Covid pandemic.

However, this growth is not divided equally between AFE50 members. Of the 50 companies listed, 32 recorded portfolio growth, one recorded no portfolio movement while 17 saw declines in their book, including several seeing double-digit percentage falls.

With the top 50 firms accounting for around 80% of the market, the total value of business equipment and vehicle lease receivables last year was an estimated £402 billion.

This year’s edition of the AFE50 reveals:

  • Top 50 companies by total lease receivables
  • Industry growth by sector
  • Share of receivables by nation, based on head offices
  • Largest captives
  • Largest companies in rail/aviation
  • Largest independents
