LeasePlan is an international company of Dutch origins, specialised in automobile leasing and fleet management.

Its products are composed of operational fleet management services. It was founded in 1963.[1][2] It has more than 14% of its approximately 6,600 employees working out of the Netherlands.

The company is owned by LP Group B.V., a consortium including Stichting Pensioenfonds Zorg en Welzijn, Arbejdsmarkedets Tillægspension, GIC Private Limited, TDR Capital and Luxinva S.A. of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.


Founded in the Netherlands in 1963 following a joint venture between a bank and a company providing services to drivers, LeasePlan initially specialised in the open-book management model (an actual costs management system). LeasePlan expanded internationally in the 1970s by establishing operations in Belgium, Germany, France, and Great Britain.[1][3]

In 1985, the banking group ABN-Amro acquired 100% of the shares in LeasePlan and founded a holding company named ABN-Amro Lease Holding. LeasePlan diversified its offer by introducing an online fleet management software package (Plan8, now called FleetReporting).

Responding to the trend in market consolidation, LeasePlan acquired several companies in the years following 2000 (Dial in Great Britain, in France, and in Italy, and CSC in the United States).

In 2003, the holding company of the LeasePlan Group was renamed LeasePlan Corporation.

In 2004, ABN-Amro sold LeasePlan Corporation to a consortium consisting of the Volkswagen Group (50%), Olayan Group (25%), and Mubadala Development Company (25%).

On 21 March 2016, an international consortium led by the Dutch Stichting Pensioenfonds Zorg en Welzijn pension fund completed its acquisition of the company.[4] In 2017, the company announced it was exploring strategic alternatives for the business, that included a potential initial public offering.
