A closer look at factoring for SMEs
Working with a bank or a fintech?
Over the last decade or so, the debt financing market has seen fintechs arrive on the scene.
As a contraction of the words “finance” and “technology”, thanks to the digital age, these firms seek to streamline company access to financing solutions. They are intended to be simpler and quicker than traditional banks. Their solutions may be used in addition to or instead of banks. They propose different terms of funding (commercial eligibility, cost of financing, etc.)
How do you choose between a fintech and traditional factor?
The choice depends largely on four criteria: the total amount, the urgent nature, the recurring need for financing and the price.,
In making a choice between factors and fintechs, you first need to analyse your financing requirements at the time and also try to anticipate future requirements.
Why use a factoring broker?
Brokers assist you in classifying your financing requirements. They offer advice and help guide you towards the best solutions. They also offer you access to the entire factoring marketplace with a single study. Brokers propose a comparison of the cost and financing potential for each solution. The economic model used by brokers allows you to receive highly technical advice, at no extra cost.
