Igor Zaks Receivables Finance International


Igor Zaks, CFA, President of Tenzor Ltd will speak at BCR’s 21st annual Receivables Finance International Convention, 18-20 May 2021.

The receivables finance sector continues to evolve rapidly. Covid-19 has meant a significant shift in market attitudes. Some of these will be permanent; some will disappear over time. Many expect a rapid rise in receivables finance business coming out of the pandemic as government-imposed restrictions are eased. But navigating to that point could be tricky as the financial support provided by governments will expose many SMEs to terminal positions.

Igor will be moderating two panel sessions:
