Odessa is the headline sponsor of AFC Summer 2024 Conference


Asset Finance Connect is pleased to announce that Odessa are headline sponsor of the AFC UK Summer 2024 Conference.

“We are delighted to back the Asset Finance Connect’s annual conference as it considers how technology and regulation can build a better industry which achieves great outcomes for its customers and increasing returns for its stakeholders. This is an important moment for the industry and a time when it is important for the industry thought leaders to meet,” said Alexandre Ellwood, Managing Director Europe at Odessa.

The AFC UK Conference is Europe’s largest auto and equipment finance event with over 450 industry leaders and practitioners who meet twice a year to debate opportunities and challenges facing the asset, auto and equipment finance markets.

This year’s AFC Summer Conference is taking place on 6th June at etc venues, at County Hall on the Southbank in London. This is a change from our normal venue.

UK regulatory and ombudsman interventions take centre stage. The conference will focus on the review of historic motor finance agreements in the auto finance stream; regulatory creep, the super-complaint made by FSB and improving broker-lender interaction in the asset finance stream; and the twin challenges of sustainability and margin management for banks and captives in the equipment/vendor finance stream.

The afternoon tech sessions will focus on the hot-spots where emerging tech can help reduce costs-to-serve and build margin in auto, asset and equipment finance.
