Each year, in support of its mission to be "your eye on the future," the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation brings together a group of industry executives to form the Industry Future Council (IFC). The IFC is tasked with exploring trends and early signals of change and evaluating how these issues could impact the equipment leasing and finance business in the years to come.
During the 2017, 2018, and 2019 convenings of the IFC, participants focused conversations on specific topics including technology, a changing workforce, a new customer base, and incorporating innovation into strategicplanning. Thriving amid an era of disruption has been and will continue to be at the forefront of how and why industry professionals develop new strategies, technologies, and process maps to navigate through the everevolving equipment finance industry.
This IFC Report summarizes discussions held at the 2019 convening of the IFC. Much like the previous several IFC convenings, this year’s meeting—February 11-12, 2019—brought into focus matters that equipment leasing and finance firms may wish to consider implementing now as they plan for future growth.
