Finance Lease

About the Course

Finance lease has become one of the most important modern finance tools to which major financial institutions tend as an alternative to loans, since it involves several advantages. The increasing volume of finance lease transactions has led legislators to develop it as a non-banking finance tool and overcome the obstacles encountering finance lease companies through enactment of special laws and issuance of ministerial decrees. This expansion has led many major banks and financial institutions to establish finance lease companies so as to take part in this activity as a successful finance tool. This training program presents the most important practical legal points that finance lease professionals are likely to face, as described in the content below.
