John Lindsay, former head of asset management at Investec Asset Finance, has launched JLSR consultancy practice to the asset finance, leasing, automotive and transport sectors.
Lindsay, whose career across these sectors spans more than 20 years, said: "JLSR brings a broad set of skills and experience to the market that enables the company to offer a range of advisory, consultancy and management services from business acquisitions to risk management.
"Due to increased activity across all four sectors in terms of growth and companies looking to diversify or reassess their current risk policies JLSR can help businesses to generate income, drive profit and manage risk.
"Having the required experience, knowledge and passion enables JLSR to get underneath the skin of the market and this enables the business to understand the sectors within which it works.
"While in the process of setting the business up I have had a number of very encouraging conversations with a number of businesses across all four sectors and I’m confident that JLSR Limited will be able to grow sustainably and I’m very excited about what the future holds for the business.”
