’Receivables finance to become a common mainstream offering’

Michael Bickers says ’receivables finance to become a common mainstream offering’.

In the run up to the annual Receivables Finance International Convention* in Lisbon in two weeks, Michael Bickers, Managing Director of BCR Publishing commented ‘Growth in receivables finance is happening right across Europe and beyond. Businesses, banks, private and institutional investors are beginning to realise that the once humble receivable – previously largely confined to a lowly back-office administrative environment – is fast becoming the darling of the commercial finance world.

The innovative methods of delivering receivables finance are beginning to disrupt traditional funding channels. Not only will this continue, but it will also herald a new era in business finance with much larger volumes being transacted and receivables finance becoming a common and mainstream offering. To some extent this development may eat into the growth rate of the traditional factoring market and also the market share of other forms of business finance such as the overdraft and term loans. Yet it will open up new markets for receivables finance, such as in the mid cap sector (which is very much underserved) as well as secondary markets through securitisation, creating huge potential opportunities for banks, independent factors – that can adapt their business relatively easily – and platform providers.’
