Why you need a flexible solution

When it comes to right-sizing your balance sheet due to the ongoing global pandemic, there simply is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution. Just some of the variables that will determine your unique solution, include:

  • Assets under management goals
  • Fleet plans
  • Capital requirements
  • Risk strategy
  • Flexibility requirements for adapting strategies to a changing market
  • Available resources for planning and execution of asset monetization
  • Expertise in surplus transactions, from effective marketing strategies to compliance requirements

With all of this and more, there are a variety of options to consider and a variety of ways to execute those options. It’s a lot to navigate, especially when you have limited resources and need to remain nimble as we watch the market change during this time.

An effective asset management or consignment plan should not be set and left alone. You need a dedicated partner to monitor and adjust with you over time. Through the Collins AssetFlex service programs, we are able to fit your asset monetization strategies into a number of other creative asset strategies for meeting overall financial, maintenance and growth goals.
