IC|ENERGY proudly presents «Operating Lease Conference», taking place on the 8-9 November in Istanbul at Point Hotel. 

Both mature and emerging markets are suffering from margin compression. This is primarily due to the fact that the finance lease is increasingly looked upon in the market place as a loan equivalent. From an economics point of view, it is indeed loan like; from an accounting point of view, it is booked as though it is a loan; and, from a tax point of view in most countries it is treated the same way as a loan!

Operating leases provide the customer with a host of benefits that finance leases do not; and, simultaneously allow the lessor to benefit from profit sources not found in finance leases.
Operating leases will soon face dramatic changes in light of forthcoming accounting changes; yet, because of the numerous significant benefits they deliver, they will continue to remain viable.
The conference is the first-ever comprehensive event focusing solely on operating leases. It features a multiplicity of talented speakers from both mature and emerging markets.
All presentations will be relevant to one and all. Leasing companies new to the product will gain tremendous insight into the complexities of operating leases; leasing companies already engaged in the product will fine tune their skills.
