International FCI factoring at Santander Bank.

Increasing the security of commercial transactions with the recipient is one of the elements that exporters pay special attention to. An interesting solution is the so-called Export factoring in the system of two factors (without recourse), in which the risk of insolvency of a foreign recipient is assumed by the Import Partner (a foreign factor operating in the recipient's country). This type of factoring guarantees smooth financing of the current activity even in the case of non-payment by the Recipient.

During this meeting, we will try to answer the following questions:

- How to find and verify foreign contractors?

- How to secure payments from recipients?

- How to finance the sale?

- How to check the credibility of the company you want to cooperate with?
