On February 28th, the Portuguese Association of Leasing, Factoring and Renting (ALF) celebrated four decades of dedication and service to financing the national economy. Recognising this significant milestone, the Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (IAPMEI) marked the 40th anniversary with the launch of three informative videos highlighting the sectors represented by ALF: Leasing, Renting and Factoring.

Established in 1984, ALF has played a crucial role in the development and strengthening of the Portuguese business fabric, providing innovative and flexible financial solutions.

IAPMEI, the government body dedicated to supporting and promoting small and medium-sized enterprises, recognises ALF's importance to the national economy, paying tribute not only to ALF's 40th anniversary, but also by enlightening companies on the solutions available, promoting a deeper understanding of the options that can boost their growth.

The first video highlights Leasing, explaining how this financial solution can benefit companies when it comes to acquiring essential assets for their business. The second video focuses on Renting, covering the advantages of this model in terms of fleet management, providing a flexible and efficient approach. Finally, the third video focuses on Factoring, explaining how this practice can improve cash flow and optimise companies' financial management.

In addition to IAPMEI's YouTube channel, the videos can be viewed at the Academia de PME digital and at the Entrepreneur APP.
