To Our Partners in the Equipment Leasing Industry –

While the pandemic continues to create unpredictability in all facets of our lives, Atalaya Leasing remains active with investment opportunities while navigating the complexities and hardships of COVID-19.

This month, we have executed several new investments, developed new strategic relationships, expanded our team, and have experienced an acceleration in deal flow. We also returned to our new offices in Rockefeller Center in New York City. Check out some deal spotlights and links below to learn more and, as circumstances permit, we would gladly invite you to visit our new space.

More broadly, in the face of the challenges posed in today’s environment, we emphasize that we welcome opportunities to be thoughtful partners, emphasizing creativity and innovation in structuring transactions. 


Meet the Team:

Cecile Latouche recently joined Atalaya Leasing as a director, bringing over 20 years of experience (15 in the leasing industry) in originating, structuring and underwriting commercial transactions. Prior to joining Atalaya, Cecile was the Credit Risk Officer for the equipment finance segment at Sterling National Bank. We asked Cecile some questions to help you get to know her a little better. 

What are you most looking forward to about joining Atalaya Leasing?

The opportunity to develop and grow a world-class leasing platform by identifying gaps in the market that allow Atalaya to create value by leveraging its institutional team and using its flexible capital base. We couldn’t have said this better ourselves! 

What is your favorite part of working in equipment leasing?

It is a large and diverse industry that provides an opportunity to differentiate through creative and flexible products and transaction structures. We liked this answer too, but not as much as the first question.

What is the best TV show you binge watched during quarantine?

Seinfeld is my personal all-time favorite comedy show and was great to watch again during quarantine. Who’s going to turn down a Junior Mint?  It’s chocolate, it’s peppermint, it’s delicious!
