With over $3 billion in assets originated through our AAA rated CFI Trust conduit, Automotive and Lease Financing has become one of our core strengths.
We have a reputation for giving companies access to capital markets at lower and more flexible funding rates than traditional lenders. One of the ways CFI Trust accomplishes this is by issuing notes in the Canadian capital markets - something we have done successfully for over 15 years. Automotive and Lease Financing has become another way in which companies raise capital at economical costs in the financial markets.
Unlike many Automotive and Lease Financing Groups, CFI Trust finances real assets and provides full public disclosure on their performance on a regular basis. CFI Trust match funds its assets through the issuance of medium term notes on both a fixed and floating basis through public and private issuances.
Our Automotive and Lease Financing Group specialists are respected and senior people in the business. Their experience gives them the skill to structure innovative financings. The structuring of Canada’s first rental car securitization is just one example.
Our structured finance group administers the securitization of asset backed receivables. CFI Trust has been established to be the holder of such security and the issuer of the debt required to fund the assets (receivables) acquired in our securitization program. This type of financing has proven to be another cost effective way for companies that have financed their receivables in a traditional manner to avail themselves of more inexpensive financing, resulting in increased profits.
