editor's letter

Welcome to the seventh edition of Leasing Life’s digital briefing magazine.

In this fourth edition of 2018, we cover the opinion of the market on the UK government’s new small business commissioner in the face of Brexit adversity.

We cover what the updated timelines are for the RBS state aid recompense to the challenger banks, worth an approximate £775m.

The Competition and Markets Authority released its SME banking customer satisfaction rankings and we take in the data in this issue.

What role the EIB and EIF might have in the UK is not clear at the moment – we cover off the testimony of industry heads in the House of Lords about this issue

Additionally, we cover a complex invoice finance fraud and its devastating impact on an ambitious fintech called Urica, and also how banks are looking to get a bigger slice of the fintech pie.

Finally, we look at the leasing industry growth in Scandinavia and what’s drawing lessors there.
