The Survey of Equipment Finance Activity (SEFA) is the most important source of statistical information available on the equipment finance industry.

The 2016 SEFA report provides access to comprehensive performance metrics for 116 equipment leasing and finance companies -- by volume size, organization type, market segment and business model. You'll uncover productivity measures, residual experience, balance sheet data, financial ratios, profitability data and more. The expanded executive summary walks users through the key findings.

The Small-Ticket SEFA is a companion report to the SEFA that focuses on respondents' small-ticket portfolios, including both micro-ticket (up to $25,000) and small-ticket ($25,000 to $250,000) transactions.
