Reverse factoring and dynamic discounting are well known in the Dutch Treasury community. Many corporates have already implemented or considered implementing different solutions, the outstanding volumes have grown year on year and new parties with alternative concepts keep entering the market. Cases like Carilion show that it’s not only a good news show but there can be considerable risks involved. Also, rating agencies are becoming more vocal regarding the lack of transparency. Ample reasons for Orchard Finance together with the DACT to organize a masterclass on reverse factoring.
During this PEP, current topics in reverse factoring and dynamic discounting will be presented during four presentations by a selection of industry experts. After the break, the participants are invited to join a discussion with the panel on recent trends and developments (e.g. government initiatives protecting suppliers as a reaction on payment term extension, the impact of rating agencies on supply financing programs, is supplier finance recession-proof).
