asset-finance.pngAccording to new figures released by the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA), new asset finance business grew for its 36th consecutive month to £2.9bn.

All sectors, with the one exception of aircraft, ships and rolling stock, saw an increase in new business with plant and machinery up 16% and car finance increasing by 10%.

In September, business equipment finance saw the biggest increase at 29% year-on-year, seeing the sector reach an estimated £221m. Despite Brexit uncertainty, confidence in the market is growing with the figures indicating a positive outlook.

Geraldine Kilkelly, Head of Research and Chief Economist at the FLA, said:
“Encouragingly, September saw the second consecutive month of growth in new finance provided for plant and machinery. In the third quarter as a whole, new finance for agricultural equipment and construction equipment grew by 16% and 4% respectively compared with Q3 2015.”
