Core strategy and service
L&ELP was established with the primary objective being the deployment of institutional capital to non investment grade companies, infrastructure, projects and emerging markets . It provides a bridging role by structuring leases with risk mitigation and credit risk creation as the goal.
Utilising in house expertise we design innovative methods in lease architecture to convert asset and "right of use" risk into institutional credit risk. Thus, creating an institutional ready asset class from physical assets, intangible or digital in lease format.Then use our own proprietary techniques and intellectual property in conjunction with established systems and institutional capital markets for the deployment of risk transferred, leasing to project, infrastructure, renewable energy, technology, real estate and corporate defined benefit pensions.
L&ELP focus on the risk transfer and mitigation to minimum A rated counter-parties enables us to creatively lease finance a broad spectrum of construction, project or operational risk to mitigated credit risk. Opening doors that are typically closed.
These risk mitigated structures enable fully underwritten, one-stop financing solutions incorporating the full capital stack; be it in house underwritten through Leveraged & Equity Global Capital S.A./Leveraged & Equity Global Capital LP (L&EGC) or our financing and investment partners who fully understand the risk mitigated L&ELP lease architecture.
We invest lease capital with a long-term focus. This investment philosophy allows us to focus our time and effort on understanding our borrowers’ long-term fundamentals.
We value relationships and building trust. We create strong, lasting relationships and build the trust of our borrowers by honouring commitments, responding to needs and communicating directly.

Balance Sheet Leasing Optimisation
L&ELP understand that Treasurers and finance chiefs can neither predict nor determine the future environment in which the company operates, and the shift in strategy that might be required.
The capital structure is a key priority and post Covid 19 and the hits the global economy has taken from the war in Ukraine and inflation; ways to optimise the balance sheet to combine financial resilience and flexibility whilst minimising costs are an imperative.
Cost of funds, liquidity and capital requirements are leading factors considered by finance chiefs.
Typically finance chiefs will focus on the cost of equity, debt and leasing and may ignore other increasingly important aspects like the risk premium. Incorporating the risk of exposure within the balance sheet, both from internal and external factors, can reduce optimisation and by doing so reduce liquidity and increase cost.
While market shocks may be regional or as we have seen global in their impact, this impact generally differs across markets. Adverse movements can affect business strategy and the potential for growth, ongoing feasibility of investment projects and inter-company borrowing requirements.
L&ELP BSO leasing services target a bullet proof balance sheet through performance enhancing risk transfer, resulting in cost optimisation.
