The Finance & Leasing Association is the UK’s leading trade body for asset finance, consumer finance and motor finance sectors. Our members include banks, subsidiaries of banks, and building societies, the finance arms of major retailers and manufacturers, and a range of independent firms.
In 2016, our members provided £118 billion of new finance. £88 billion of this was in the form of consumer credit to support purchases ranging from cars to kitchens, accounting for over a third of total new consumer credit written in the UK.
One of the most important services the FLA provides is ensuring that our members’ opinions are heard by those shaping the business environment in which they operate. This includes the UK Government and regulators, but also the EU authorities in Brussels and other international jurisdictions.
We also brief members and media on emerging industry issues and have been providing training to some of the UK’s largest financial institutions for the past 21 years.
