Priyantha Wijesekera Head of Leasing, Nations Trust Bank said "we pride ourselves as being a bank that is one with the customer, understanding their myriad needs and most importantly doing something about it. If you look at a person who intends to go in for a new vehicle or upgrade an existing one, uppermost in his mind would be the increased cost of ownership and greater outlay stemming from increased vehicle prices as well as higher borrowing rates. However like a breath of fresh air this six year option now available with our Professional Lease will ease the burden on the customer’s cash flow, and still make leasing affordable".
Some of the added features of this product are guarantors not being required, minimum documentation, ability to obtain leases for registered and unregistered vehicles and the door stem service provided by experienced sales personnel.
Sheahan Daniel, Chief Manager Leasing Sales elaborating further said "we are extremely excited and invigorated by the response that we have received from the market. This is a segment that we focus on a great deal and one in which we have established ourselves very well". Daniel went on to add "the Nations Professional Lease has gone beyond just offering greater convenience; the unique feature of this product is its flexibility that allows most people to tailor the rentals to suit each person’s individual cash flow".
