Financial Results

At First American, we provide high quality equipment leasing and financing services to stable, sophisticated corporate borrowers and nonprofit entities.  Our growth and success translate to enhanced resources that help us better serve our valued clients. 



  • First American Equipment Finance is one of the top finance/leasing companies (out of more than 4,200) in the United States, as ranked by both new business volume and by net assets.1 

  • We grow our business organically – earning each new client individually, and working tirelessly to also earn their long-term loyalty.

  • This growth allows us to invest in powerful tools that make it highly convenient to work with us. 

  • We complement our convenient technology tools with highly personalized client service. Indeed, we provide service for 100% of the leases we originate with a high-level, dedicated Project Manager who knows the client's business, history, and unique financing needs. 

  • Our disciplined lending approach has led to continued strong portfolio performance, as well as credit losses far below the industry averages. 2

  • Beyond that, we are backed by the financial strength and stability of City National Bank, one of the most highly respected business banks in the U.S.  For additional financial information about our parent company, please click here. In 2015, RBC merged with City National. As the combined organization’s U.S. equipment finance arm, First American Equipment Finance is in the unique position of operating like a nimble independent organization, backed by the strength and stability of City National and RBC. It truly is the best of both worlds working for you.

At First American Equipment Finance, we are proud to be a successful and growing organziation, focused solely on serving our clients' unique finance needs. We have learned that clients' evolving buying preferences favor our technology-friendly model, paired with truly excellent, customized service.
