Could you benefit from specialist expertise on receivables finance?

According to statistics from the factoring associations, the receivables finance business has been growing by more than 20% year-on-year in recent years, and at even higher rates for cross-border receivables.

A study by McKinsey suggested that bank revenues generated by receivables finance will increase over 400% between now and 2020, growing from about $9 billion today to almost $40 billion. 

Receivables financing continues to grow in popularity in a challenging modern marketplace. This type of financing offers a variety of clear benefits, while neatly sidestepping a number of risks associated with cross-border trade. 

The 2nd edition of A Guide to Receivables Finance is a practical reference guide dedicated to helping professionals choose the best source of liquidity for their organisation. Written by a number of respected industry experts, including general editor Geoff Wynne, this book will help you identify the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of receivables finance.

  • How receivables can be created in a way to make them attractive for financing;
  • Basel III, CRD IV, and the legal and regulatory issues associated with capital adequacy;
  • Agreements and payment types available;
  • Forfaiting and factoring;
