Banqsoft Featured in World Leasing Yearbook 2021

Catch up on the latest trends and insights from World Leasing Yearbook 2021 edition, featuring an extended article on the acceleration of leasing in a post-pandemic market from Banqsoft's CEO Terje Kjøs.

During the second quarter of 2020, the auto industry experienced a dramatic drop in sales of new cars and temporary shut-down  of  car  factories. Although many  countries  are  gradually opening up again, it will take time to get back to normal, and the new normal is most likely not as it was before.

Kjøs shared his thoughts with World Leasing Yearbook on how Covid-19 swept the auto leasing industry into an acceleration of new transformations - such as shifts from buying to leasing, how consumers are shaping tomorrow's mobility trends, and insight where the future might look brighter than expected for those that can offer what today's consumers prefer.

Rene Sterregaard, CEO and Managing Director at Volkswagen Semler Finans Denmark, also contributed with his insight on the ongoing market transformation.


Lessors and lenders need to meet their customers where they are - not only on different platforms and on the internet, but also in today's dealerships. This inspires the omnichannel thought of where and how we integrate different methods of shopping available to customers.
