Factoring continues to grow successfully both in mature markets and in emerging markets. Through their control methods and permanent monitoring of the receivables on their clients’ debtors, factoring companies are able to provide more financing than traditional lenders and, at the same time, limit their credit risks to a strict minimum. Factoring companies therefore play an important role in financing the economic activity, also during the financial crisis. Traditionally it is small and medium-sized companies that benefit most from this financial instrument, but also more important companies use factoring for flexible growth finance or for restructuring purposes. FCI launched recently a Supply Chain Finance (SCF) platform available to its members. It will allow FCI members to expand their service offering, both for domestic and international business, through FCI’s unique global network of nearly 400 members in 90 countries.
The Conference was aimed at an audience of professionals from the CEE & Middle East Region and beyond, and particularly towards the leaders of:
- Factoring companies
- Supply Chain Finance companies
- Specialized banks and financial institutions
- Consulting firms
- Official organizations
- Companies offering their services to the world of factoring (lawyers, insurers, IT providers)
