Top 5 Independent Leasing Companies

One of the major magazines for the leasing industry just published its first list of top private independent leasing companies. The list is based upon the dollar value of new leasing business closed in 2007.

Here are the top five:

  1. CSI Leasing
  2. US Express Leasing
  3. Great America Leasing
  4. ICON Capital
  5. Relational Technology Solutions
Like any list, a prospective borrower needs to know the specific target markets of the lender. Does the lender have specific industries, asset types, credit profiles or deal sizes that it is willing to pursue?

For example, CSI Leasing specializes in technology equipment. ICON Capital looks for deals in the $10 million to $150 million size. US Express focuses on five main origination platforms - you wouldn't contact them to finance construction equipment.
