The XI Latin American Leasing Conference November 7-8 at the Intercontinental Hotel at Doral in Miami will bring valuable guidance and case studies to promote “Innovation and Leadership in Latin America .” The conference will feature educational sessions focused on this goal, and networking opportunities with potential customers, suppliers and financiers. Special facilities will be arranged to facilitate efficient networking, in addition to all the benefits of the conference.
The conference is coordinated each year by The Alta Group Latin American Region.
In the past 10 conferences, most attendees have been chief executive officers, chief financial officers and other top managers of the largest equipment leasing and financing companies operating in Latin America , as well as top regional managers of equipment vendors, multilateral institutions and other organizations from different countries and regions. Simultaneous translation will be provided in Spanish and English since the meeting attracts executives from the United States as well as from throughout Latin America . Speakers will explore the following topics.

  • A Panoramic View of the Leasing Industry in Latin America : Results of The Alta LAR 100 (Alta’s annual ranking of the top leasing operations and trends in the region)
  • Overview of Leasing in Latin America
  • The Impact of Future Accounting Treatment of Leases in the Leasing Business: Operational and Commercial Aspects
  • Asset Management: Trend Analysis and Generation of Capabilities for Operating Leases
  • Case Studies Concerning Funding Models for Leasing Companies
  • Case Studies of Sustainable Growth by Leasing Companies

 “While the equipment leasing and financing industry in Latin America is reaching maturity, competition from other lessors, as well as banks and captives, is creating the dilemma of ‘innovate or die,’” said Rafael Castillo-Triana, CEO of The Alta Group Latin American Region. “In addition, leadership is indispensable for driving the success of the business, not only throughout the organization, but also in its relationships with governments, funding sources, customers and other stakeholders.”
“Notwithstanding the expected deceleration of growth in emerging markets, Latin America is still an attractive region for investment, where most of the long-term growth in capital formation is going to happen in the next several decades. We are facing changes in a new accounting standard that will impact the leasing business in Latin America , in the role of banks, regulators and assets markets,” he explained.
