How a Community Bank Lease Can Help You Grow Your Banking Relationships

If you’re not offering leasing services, you could be missing out on a relationship-building (and money-making) opportunity.

Many of your customers – especially local municipalities, schools and hospitals – may already be leasing particular assets, and if they can’t come to you for this unique financing option, they may, unfortunately, be turning to other banks.

Bell Bank Equipment Finance provides an easy and fast solution for banks. Our “community bank lease” helps you give your customers what they need without the burden of personnel, software or credit risk.

Using a collaborative approach, we work with you to deliver the best and most flexible lease structure available – at highly competitive rates – to your customer. We understand the importance of your guarded and valued customer relationship. That’s why Bell brings the experience, knowledge and excellent customer service through you to your customer. You also receive fee income on each transaction. And we can provide you with customized marketing material at no cost.

Bell’s community bank lease program can help you:

  • Increase product capability
  • Expand and solidify relationships
  • Capture existing business within your commercial portfolio
  • Respond to municipal leasing requests in your market
