THE Leasing Broker Federation launched the LBF T30 at the Leasing Broker Awards and Dinner last night at RSA House, London (November 23).
This new initiative has been designed to highlight the growing influence of brokers on the automotive sector and will be repeated year on year to provide a bell-weather of the leasing broker sector.
It will be the definitive list for leasing brokers.
“This has been something I’ve wanted to do for over eight years now. It provides a clear indication of the influence on the market of the Federation’s leasing brokers with the majority showing growth year on year,” said Ralph Morton, editor of Leasing Broker News.
“The leasing industry has its own highly established and influential FN50 annual listing of leasing companies; we want the LBF T30 to have similar status for leasing brokers.
“I’m grateful to each and every one of the brokers who participated in this this initial running of the LBF T30. In particular, praise must go to those new start up brokerages brave enough to enter a zero. They have understood the importance of charting their growth trajectory in the future.”
The inaugural LBF T30 was headed by Nationwide Vehicle Contracts with its fleet size under management of 37,523 vehicles. To put this figure into perspective, that would place Nationwide at number 12 in the FN50.
Although clearly there is no asset risk for the brokers, it does highlight the magnitude of their influence on the personal leasing and SME sector.
Dave Johnson from Nationwide collected the inaugural prize in recognition for its achievement in heading the first LBF T30.
