Fusion Auto Finance develops turn-key auto leasing programs with credit unions that generate a high return on investment as well as high customer satisfaction. Core competencies in residual value analysis and lease-end account management help mitigate the two most challenging risks associated with automotive leasing. Remarketing is the foundation for Fusion and handling the customer interaction as well as the vehicle at lease maturity. Fusion has developed a true full-circle business with every detail considered, from origination to servicing to resale and disposition.
Fusion focuses its business model on providing competitive programs that are financially sound for the company, the credit union partner, and the credit union member. Along with its marketing partner, GrooveCar, Fusion offers credit unions the CU Xpress Lease, the nation’s number one credit union auto leasing program. Members enjoy the benefits of lower monthly payments, gap waiver coverage, flexible lease terms, and a fair wear-and-tear policy. Credit unions devote their efforts to credit risk and servicing members while Fusion manages all residual value risk.
