The Credit Insurance Puzzle: Why is it 5x more popular in Europe?- webcast by Igor Zax for CFA

Igor Zax, Managing Director of Tenzor Ltd. will be presenting a webinar “The Credit Insurance Puzzle: Why is it 5x more popular in Europe”. The webcast, hosted by Commercial Finance Association (CFA), the international trade association dedicated to the asset-based lending and factoring industries and will take place on 4th  of November 11 am EST/4pm GMT.

Why is the percentage of secured transactions that are insured five times higher in Europe in the USA?  And what can we learn from the difference?
Credit Insurance can bring up strong opinions, and often we hear most about it from the insurance experts themselves, or from lenders who want to share a horror story.
Igor Zax will offer an unbiased overview of common misconceptions about credit insurance, and mistakes that are often made.  He will explore the reasons (right and wrong) why it more popular in some markets and less so in other, and the ways to structure programs for various purposes (both export and domestically). Zax will also map credit insurance among other available tools (from both corporate and financial institution prospective).

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

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.”
