Summary/Abstract: The article highlights the current state of the financial services market, in particular financial leasing, which is a form of intensification of the investment process in Ukraine. The main problems of financial leasing development and prospects of its development in Ukraine are revealed. The shortcomings and advantages of financial leasing and its characteristics are determined. The article assesses the state of the Ukrainian market of leasing services and identifies the main problems of its functioning. An estimation of the development of the number of leasing companies in Ukraine is made. It is established that the number of legal entities - lessors remains almost unchanged, but financial companies that provide financial leasing services are rapidly developing. It is substantiated that financial companies providing financial leasing services as universal institutions provide a wider range of financial services in crisis conditions; it serves as the basis for the growth of their number. In these circumstances, these financial institutions can take over the functions of banks and develop at the expense of a larger portfolio of financial services than in highly specialized institutions. Distribution of concluded financial leasing agreements is characterized by the fact that transport, agriculture and construction were the most significant decrease. The services sector, machine building and metallurgy were almost not influenced of the destructive processes. Extractive industry, in contrast to the rest of the industries, has increased the volumes of financial leasing contracts.In the course of the study, the hypothesis of the substitutability of bank lending by leasing was confirmed, which is confirmed by the growing number of financial companies providing financial leasing services while simultaneously reducing the number of banks.
