Captive Lease Advisors advise on the benefits, as well as the establishment, of a fully functional in-house captive leasing and financing company for a product manufacturer or distributor, offering competitive product financing for all product customers, one that provides both a product marketing advantage and new profit center opportunity. The captive product financing can be offered using, in whole or in part, a product vendor’s internal funds or funds from third-party financing companies or banks. And the financing operation can be set up fully with in-house personnel or substantially using cost-effective third-party finance operation service providers, which the Advisory Team can identify.
We advise on, as well as develop and negotiate the necessary state-of-the-art contract documents, such as equipment lease and conditional sale contracts and managed services agreements, used for customer product financing, as well as provide legal advice on the various provisions. The Advisory Team can also identify and facilitate arrangements, as necessary, with law firms for tax and legal advice.
We advise on the development and offering of product financing for various types of financing contracts, including developing market competitive financing rates and structures. The Advisory Team can also develop a captive operation business plan, including pro forma financial statements, for the evaluation and set up and operation of a vendor financing company.
