ALF - Portuguese Association of Leasing, Factoring and Renting was founded in 1984, as Apelease - Portuguese Association of Leasing Companies.

In 2005, APEF - Portuguese Association of Factoring Companies was merged into Apelease. This merger resulted in the change of the name to ALF - Portuguese Association of Leasing and Factoring.

In 2008, ALF's statutes were changed to accommodate the companies of a new product: Renting.

In 2010, the name is changed to the current one, ALF - Portuguese Association of Leasing, Factoring and Renting.

ALF represents almost 100% of all entities that carry out leasing, factoring and renting activities in Portugal.

Being in operation since 1984, ALF constitutes a true archive of knowledge and history of the sectors it represents.



The Association's fundamental objective is to defend and to represent the legitimate common interests of its members, notably in relation to any public or private, domestic or foreign, contributing to the technical, economic and social development of the own activity of its members.
