Welcome from Alfa

Andrew Denton, CEO, Alfa

Alfa is delighted to welcome delegates to our industry’s leading asset finance conference.

The industry is facing many challenges from rising inflation and interest rates, the cost of living crisis, supply chain issues and new regulation causing increased uncertainties for businesses. Despite these disruptions, the sector can use the lessons learnt throughout the pandemic and continue to demonstrate remarkable resilience to maintain a growing market and investment in asset finance and leasing.

The use of new digital solutions will be as important as ever to the industry in building a responsive, flexible operation. Digital services will be further enhanced with a new digital environment which will completely transform how lenders interact with their customers and conduct their business.

The Asset Finance Connect conference is an ideal opportunity to share experiences and knowledge while networking with industry colleagues and establishing new relationships. The focus this year is on achieving continued, sustainable business growth, staying compliant following the new Consumer Duty rules, and maintaining a competitive edge in a changing landscape.

There is great potential for the industry in the future - not least in supporting the move to greener, more sustainable operations. Digital services underpin these developments, allowing organisations to streamline the customer journey and offering consistent oversight of all business operations.

Crucially, digital technologies provide access to the data and predictive insights that will drive future growth and identify future exposures and risk. As a leading global specialist in asset finance software solutions, Alfa is at the heart of this debate as our technology powers digitalisation programmes around the globe, with several of our progressive customers also exploiting opportunities in AI through Alfa iQ.

Our software is an agile platform, through which finance companies can repeatedly adapt, developing new services that support the customer of today and the businesses of the future.

The team from Alfa looks forward to taking part in the debate, and to catching up with our friends in the industry.
