Igor Zax to moderate a panel at Alternative and Receivables Finance Conference

Thursday Feb 5, 2015

Igor Zax, Managing Director of Tenzor Ltd., is going to moderate a panel at “Alternative and Receivables Finance” conference in London 11 May 2015, organized by BCR Publishing.

The panel topic is : Optimising product innovation and market differentiation in the receivables and alternatives space

The traditional products are not growing much if at all at the smaller end of the SME market – yet the need for new methods for releasing working capital is clear. One of great virtues of digital banking and the online platforms is that they enable companies to finance only those receivables they wish to finance, rather than having to discount their whole sales ledger

  • What is the value and driving forces for single invoice financing from customer standpoint?
  •        How does the product fit comparing to other available solutions?
  • Investments in technology – which technologies, who provides them, what would they enable  funders to achieve that cannot be offered easily today?
  • Platforms vs. individual alternative lenders – pros and cons?
  • Is there sufficient real-time information available to allow better credit underwriting to occur?
  • Does receivables finance need regulation to make it work better for customers, investors and other stakeholder?
  • The elephant in the room: what will be the regulatory response for significant losses to unsophisticated investors?

Moderator:
Igor Zax, Managing Director, TENZOR LTD

Panellists:

David Parsons, Regional Director South and Midlands, SECURE TRUST BANK
Chris Dark, President International, C2FO

Receivables Finance in the Context of Working Capital Management by Igor Zax

Friday Jun 13, 2014

Igor Zax, Managing Director of Tenzor Ltd, published a new article, Receivables Finance in Context of Working Capital Management in TRF News (Trade and receivable Finance News, a major publication by BCR).

Editorial comment states “Igor Zax’s article in today’s trfnews, ‘Receivables Finance in the Context of Working Capital Management’, reminds us of the value of looking back at the history of modern supply chains and how working capital management, and hence factoring and supply chain finance, has developed from this. It also reflects on the potential frailty and dangers that over exposure to some supply chain structures can bring.

On late payments he says: “just a couple of weeks delay on 30 day terms increases working capital consumption by one-and-a-half times.” I wonder how many factors use such direct terms in their advertising material. If they do not, perhaps they should consider it, particularly as the trend is for larger companies to use receivables finance, and it is those companies in particular that tend respond well to the use of such analytic sound bites.”
