AEL Financial is an independent leasing investor that provides capital for equipment-based transactions and portfolios. Since our inception in 2001, we have completed in excess of $1 billion in such transactions. As an investor in each transaction, we can handle all aspects of a project, including equipment, soft costs, software, diverse leasing structures, progress payment financing and related acquisition costs.

Built on the cornerstones of integrity, focus, pioneering spirit and a commitment to meeting the needs of our partners, AEL Financial creates customized leasing solutions for each customer, helping them to manage risk and maximize profitability.

AEL customers include:

  • Companies in need of capital equipment
  • Vendors of capital equipment and software
  • Banks looking for a partner to deliver leasing solutions
  • Companies selling equipment
  • Companies requiring an equipment remarketing service

We distinguish ourselves from conventional lenders and lessors by providing capabilities and services beyond the traditional finance company and providing the best possible solution to each of our customers.

  • Unlike typical lenders, AEL specializes in equipment risk management and is committed to making direct investments in each project.
  • Our partnerships with equipment vendors, VARS, and resellers help to source the best pricing available in the market for IT equipment assets.
  • Our suite of equipment trading and asset disposal capabilities allows us to offer flexible options to customers throughout the lease term. Lessees can simplify disposal of assets by returning the equipment to lessor at end of term.
  • AEL offers an online lease processing platform that allows each client to manage transactions from initial inquiry through the lease term.
  • We can handle any deal big or small.
