The Grosvenor Group has launched a new partnership with Select Car Leasing, offering a personal car leasing service to clients, and their employees, family and friends.
The alliance will see Grosvenor Leasing and Interactive Fleet Management customers offered Select Car Leasing products, with support from Grosvenor.
Grosvenor Group CEO Shaun Barritt said: "This is a very significant new initiative. We first opened dialogue with Select Car Leasing back in 2017 about combining our skills to formulate an industry-leading personal contract hire (PCH) partnership.
"It means this very special arrangement has been two years in the making, and of such importance that we've appointed a dedicated team within Grosvenor to run our PCH offering, operating from office space which has been co-branded Grosvenor and Select Car Leasing.
"It means we can offer a superb personal leasing solution, either direct to drivers or via staff affinity schemes."
Barritt said fleet funding and management specialists had been transferred from Grosvenor's corporate business to run the new PCH division.
He continued: "They will be on hand to advise customers, and drivers, on areas such as cash for car options, taxation, vehicle choices, electric vehicles and so on.
"As well as launching our PCH offering, we have developed an affinity scheme proposition which, we believe, will exceed the market in terms of service levels, driver benefits, support, advice and pricing."
Select Car Leasing company director Mark Tongue said: "We are delighted to be partnering with The Grosvenor Group in developing a bespoke vehicle leasing offering that combines the skills and services of both businesses.
"Car leasing is seeing significant growth as private drivers see the clear benefits of taking a car lease over ownership.
"Many drivers opting for cash in lieu of company cars are also seeking to replicate the company car experience while having more freedom to choose a vehicle that best suits their needs.
"Those members of staff, who have never had a company vehicle, are also attracted by the benefits of leasing - often enabling them to afford a car that was previously out of reach thanks to the low deposits and very attractive monthly rentals that our business offers."
