Forfaiting is the discounting of trade receivables, without recourse to the Exporter. It is a highly flexible technique that allows an Exporter to grant attractive credit terms to foreign Buyers, without tying up cash flow or assuming the risks of possible late payment or default.
For issuers and arrangers of asset-backed securities we provide collateral due diligence, cash flow modeling and collateral stratification with analytics.
