Boston, April 17, 2014 – Factoring, a form of receivables finance, is an extremely vital resource for small and midsize enterprises, but access to finance is so important that other forms of financing, such as supply chain finance, are taking center stage. Contrary to the general concern that SCF steals business from factoring, some factoring companies believe that SCF and factoring are tightly connected and perceive SCF as an opportunity to expand business. But some factoring industry players still have doubts about SCF. Can factoring and SCF collaborate and share the spotlight?
This Impact Report examines the critical correlation between factoring and the development of supply chain finance and discusses the factoring industry's awareness of supply chain finance. Aite Group, with the collaboration of the International Factors Group, fielded an online questionnaire between June and September 2013 and gathered responses from executives in the global factoring industry to support the insights and conclusions presented in this report.
