Banken houden liever risico en minder winst dan het innovatief mkb-krediet derhalve beter de MKB bank naar Nederlands model
Voor kleine Nederlandse ondernemers is het moeilijk om financiering te vinden. Banken wijzen bijna de helft van de kredietaanvragen af. En als ze een lening krijgen, betalen ze tussen de 0,3 en 0,8 procentpunt meer rente op leningen dan grote bedrijven. Alternatieve financiering, zoals leasing, factoring en crowdfunding, is duur. ABPaymentflows biedt de oplossing.
Een van de redenen waarom banken huiverig zijn om het mkb te financieren, is dat ze moeite hebben om de risico’s in te schatten. Probleem is dat kleinere bedrijven vaak moeite hebben om harde financiële gegevens te verstrekken. Assed based financiering op basis van door ABPaymentflows ontwikkelde blockchaintechnologie biedt de gewenste zekerheid. ‘Zekerheid voor vaste activa heet hypotheek. Zekerheid voor semi vaste activa heet leasing. Daar komt een derde vorm van zekerheid bij, voor vlottende activa: assed based paymentflows op basis van de debiteurenportefeuile. De uitstaande facturen van debiteuren in de balans van het bedrijf vormen het fundament onder de financiering, waarbij blockchain de zekerheid levert. Met een real time assessment vindt een selectie plaats van de facturen die als onderpand dienen,’ verklaart ABPaymentflows-oprichter Gerard Markerink over de innovatieve kredietmethode. Het bedrijf staat vermeld in de recente Global top-100. Risicobeoordelaar Moody’s ziet het als de beste methode voor kredietbeoordeling bij asset based financiering. ‘Dus we weten dat we het goede systeem hebben en er geen beter systeem is. Met onze blockchain-oplossing, slots en bankrekeningen is het risico tot een minimum beperkt voor banken die met onze methode een lange termijn annuïteitenlening in STP-vorm verstrekken.’
Voor het blok
Het mkb is verantwoordelijk voor 70 procent van de werkgelegenheid. Het is het hart van de Nederlandse economie. Toch hebben banken weinig trek in financiering. In een artikel in economenblad ESB spreken 3 DNB-analisten van marktfalen, omdat het mkb onvoldoende lukt om financiering te vinden buiten de drie grootbanken om. Oprichter Gerard Markerink van ABPaymentflows kraakt een harde noot over de Nederlandse banken. ‘Met ons systeem van blockchain-technologie en bankrekeningen beperken we het financieringsrisico voor banken tot het absolute minimum. Maar ze willen gewoon niet. De banken zetten ondernemers met een rekening courant krediet voor het blok. Ze zeggen gewoon ‘we doen het niet meer’, of je gaat naar factoring en leasing. Wat veel duurder is. En als je een ‘harde’ assets tegenover de financiering hebt, dan word je gewoon de deur gewezen.’ Hij vervolgt: ‘Slechts 2 procent van de bedrijven in Nederland voldoet aan de voorwaarden voor inhouse financiering. De reden is dat banken niet genoeg klanten hebben met veel facturen tussen de 3 en 7 miljoen euro omzet om de “time-to-bank” binnen 10 dagen te laten plaatsvinden.’
Debiteuren als zekerheid
De kredietbeoordelingsmethodiek van ABPaymentflows bestaat uit een ingenieuze samenwerking van hardware (bankrekeningen en de leverancier (community) van de klanten en e-facturering) en software, waarbij de debiteuren als zekerheid dienen. De software en blockchaintechnologie die ABPaymentflows heeft ontwikkeld voor Your Capital Support (YCS) biedt kredietverstrekkers snel zekerheid. De kredietverlening vindt volledig geautomatiseerd plaats. Voor de assed based financiering wordt gewerkt met twee licenties. Bij de eerste licentie doet ABPaymentflows zelf de screening van het bedrijf dat in aanmerking wil komen voor In-house Finance krediet, onder meer op basis van drie jaar aan facturen, vanaf € 2,5 miljoen omzet. Hiermee wordt het rekening-courantkrediet overbodig.
Bedrijven die niet kwalificeren voor in-house financiering – 98 %! – komen via licentie 2 in aanmerking voor financiering, in de vorm van een annuïteitenlening. ‘Banken verliezen geen klanten, maar krijgen er juist klanten bij dankzij de zekerheid van de YCS-screening. We hebben op verzoek van een bank een blockchainsysteem met twee rekeningen per klant uitgevonden.’ Op de eerste rekening betaalt de debiteur van de kredietnemer. De bank bepaalt de jaarlengte van de STP-annuïteitlening en het loslaten van klantbetalingen op de vrije rekening. ‘Het voordeel voor het mkb is een hoger financieringsbedrag, tegen veel lagere rente dan voor een normaal rekeningcourant krediet of financieringsvormen zoals een LT-bedrijfskrediet of factoring.’
AB Paymentflows (ABP) offers SMEs, particularly those with poor credit, the highest quality credit at the best price. This is done through a variety of tasks and services, including its new IHF (In-House Financing) credit application, which provides a new asset-based financing category to enhance financing possibilities for SMEs. In light of the firm being recognised within the Technology Innovator Awards 2022, we learn more about how it helps its clients.
Gerard Markerink leads AB Paymentflows, a company enriched by his roots within NIBC in The Hague and ING Mergers and Acquisitions. Gerard is an independent finance professional and has been an M&A specialist since 1990. Indeed, he a veteran within the industry, a pro-active and solution-driven entrepreneur who leads his team with great commitment and expertise.AB Paymentflows has been a licensed company since 2018, with Gerard and his team on a mission to help SMEs who encounter difficulties when it comes to attracting funding within the current economic phase, with several developments such as retracting movement of banks, stricter requirements of loans, and adverse payment conditions contributing to their financial struggles. It is ABP’s mission to offer the SME the highest quality credit at the best price through its YCS (Your Capital Support) platform, with its strategy to achieve this being its new IHF credit form in addition to execution of various tasks and related services.
Asset-based finance has been the increasing focus of development in business lending since the 1950s. Mortgage-based finance came first, then the first mature segmented asset-based lending market. Leasing of cars and machinery followed, after its separate asset status was explicitly secured by relevant regulation. Invoice financing was a logical next step, however, this suffered from a lack of concrete possibilities to track and (legally) collateralise the invoices, resulting in a compromised status and high pricing.
Originally, financing activities of banks were as standard unsecured due to the legal and informational framework being near absent and/or nowhere near as sophisticated as today. However, the risks of trade finance were mitigated by very carefully following the activities of commercial companies. As a result, soon came the creation of an adequate legal framework mortgage-based finance which thrived, and a separate financing market then came into existence.
Based on current digital possibilities, automation, and an ingenious structure, the IHF credit invoice financing concept overcomes the suggested need of a “substantial and reliable dataset reflecting historical small business default”. It is a system that statistically predicts a specific business default, based on its idiosyncratic data, instead of relying on biased and tedious man-processed application of historic data.
Since IHF credit is based on the flow of invoices on a fully automated basis, the time-is-money concept is determined by the technical process of connecting the systems and standard administrative procedures. The initial quantitative risk assessment process is standardised and accompanied by a short procedure of qualitative assessment of the SME’s management. The structure simultaneously guarantees a fully automated monitoring activity allowing for a learning early-warning algorithm that may serve just as well as a basis for monitoring and risk assessment of financing that is related to other asset-based financing segments.
ABP partnered with Moody Analytics to explore the actual state of SME lending possibilities, from which a clear analysis was developed, and advice was received on the conditions that allow for successful SME lending in the future. These conditions as identified in Moody Analytics’ report have allowed ABP to develop a suitable and efficient business concept to ensure feasible SME financing.
Thus, AB Paymentflows developed its YCS application via Microsoft Azure in cooperation with Newco YCS. The YCS app is just the kind of advanced SaaS system that provides a single integrated solution for managing the entire credit lifecycle, with SMEs able to have two bank accounts each, enabling easy and quick processing of data. The design of this application facilitates the extension of the IHF credit, and the necessary borrower information is streamlined up to the smallest detail and processed in a fully automated way in order to prepare for lending decisions.
AB Paymentflows developed the IHF-credit (Licence 1) and recently Licence 2 for every bank via Newco YCS, for large loans, based on e-invoicing for own return and at (zero) risk of the bank. Two bank accounts are delivered for obvious reasons, per customer.
Banks receive the service included in Licence 2 for large loans, which has been developed for companies that statistically don’t comply to the IHF-credit, with a turnover between €4 million and €15 million to €20 million, as well as for those who want to have five- to ten-year one-time large annuity. The bank is the funder and sets the price for the price and profit margin, and the risk for this loan is next to nothing with hardly any supervision necessary.
The community is used as the bank organisation. The bank has an inlog in the community of two bank accounts and Newco YCS has an inlog for the credit question for Licence 1.
Communities, hardware partner in the system as the banks, deliver – for example, including companies that sell bookkeeping programmes to its customers and provide e-invoicing to them – are partners with Newco YCS and licence company, ABPaymentflows in order to provide their clients, who are already living in the digital age, access to the YCS system.
All banks can use Licence 2 for its own customers. Per country is one bank needed to execute Licence 1 together with the community and Newco YCS.

SOCIAL VALUE ADDED OF THE YCS CREDIT SYSTEM
There are 5 parties that contribute to the Social Value Added of the YCS credit facility. The Social Value added follows from the collaboration of the 5 parties.
The parties that contribute to the good functioning of the YCS credit system are:
- The SME
- The Community (for example a harbor authority with its SME clients)
- The FX trader and/or payment account provider
- YCS, the credit platform
In the old banking logic there were only 2 parties: the bank and the client.
The YCS credit system consists of a number groundbreaking characteristics:
- The credit system unburdens SMEs by digitizing financial and accountancy activities due to the credit.
- The Community has an interest in the proper functioning of its SME community, so that more SMEs receive better financing.
- The FX trader and/or payment account provider have an interest in more currency exchange. The SMEs have a currency exchange advantage compared to banks, which provides a cost advantage.
- At YCS, the credit is revolving. After a few months, the reality is that factored invoices are paid instantaneously (within a week from invoicing).
Thanks to the credit system, the cooperating partners provide a very significant advantage in liquidity and profitability for SMEs.
The credit system has received the following qualifications.
Klaus Schwab states in “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” that further automation and hyper-connectivity through cyber-physical systems is to come. The physical systems are defined as infrastructure such as payment accounts and e-invoicing, FedEx, etc., that are linked to lending by cooperation partners in the credit organization
Santander and Moody designed the credit system for the future. Below is a blog on the ABPaymentflows website. With its credit system, YCS meets all the requirements that Moody and Santander have set.
The cooperating partners do not have an active role in lending. The system functions in an automated way. As shareholders an increasing return is benefitted from.
The system is designed to fulfill the banking function on behalf of the community. The FX trader and/or payment account supplier contributes crucially to the system by offering its Cash pool/ payment systems without which the system cannot work. As a shareholder the FX trader or payment account supplier may expect increasing returns.
The FX trader and/or payment account supplier will have the opportunity to serve a new, very large market without any effort as the FX trader and/or payment account supplier enhances the quality of its services for her existing customers and gets immediate exposure to new customers.
The effects for the P&L account are large because of the large market served by the IHF credit.
Companies that operate as FX trader and/or payment account supplier are invited to join the collaboration via their own platform. Dual onboarding will take place with 1) the FX trader/or payment account provider for the payment accounts and 2) with the platform of YCS for the credit system.
See an elaborate invitation on our website.
Credit in the form of an APP
Customers who are rejected by regular financiers (banks in the first place) for reasons of lack of profitability, a lack of collateral or a lack of resilience, will in many cases qualify for the IHF credit through modelling historic events and performance based on a statistical analysis.
The application works, after the identity check, establishing the nature of the activities and modelling the track record through an initial qualitative test on management, nature of the activities and track-record exclusively on statistics.
The customer creates an account, logs in, uploads his accounts and the application qualifies the customer fully automatically on the basis of the quantitative data. After an introduction and the qualitative check, the definitive connection to the app follows and the revolving IHF credit is granted. After that the invoices are issued and sent out, full automatic credit pre-payment follows systematically.
The benefits on a row:
• For convenience to be understood as factoring. But then “factoring 2.0”, based on big data. All the advantages of the IHF credit and low costs are so implied
• Statistical qualification based on history rather than inconsistent discretionary and costly qualitative assessment by bank employees
• Off Balance structure whereby credit criteria are not improperly influenced by Governance principles (with higher return requirements as a result)
• Conversion of the bank overdraft facility into the flexible, higher ranging and moving IHF Credit (automatically moving along with the turn-over development)
• Human ware supports the credit application; the result is that a “Agricultural Credit Cooperative” – like community is created with many further potential applications
• Focus on credit size between Euro 0.4 – 2.5 million
• Attractive not only for banks but also for regional development companies and port authorities and sector-driven institutes with a broad SME client base
• Risk reducing features of the app (blocked account, pre-financing ratio with buffers for insolvency, possibly a credit insurance) guarantee that there is a negligible risk for the funding whereby the interest rate % on the IHF credit for SMEs is spectacularly low and eventually may result in even lower interest rates over time
• On balance a much more efficient credit due to far-reaching digitization and an efficient follow-up; online and real time, Off Balance and suitable for banks, finance companies and institutions with a specific (regional or institutional) interest
YCS NV Brussels
During the last three years, we developed a Fintech business concept that meets the conditions as pointed out by Moody’s, and that answers to the analysis of Santander concerning their view on Fintech 2.0. Two articles that were written by their expert teams do connect beautyful to our Fintech business case with regard to their view of the shape of the Fintech future. We hold that the YCS business concept is in many ways the perfect answer to the requirements of the future, focussed on but not limited to invoice based lending.
Below we summarize our view on the Fintech future and our role in it with reference to the two cited outstanding articles that analyse the relevant conditions for future success and the recent developments of the Fintech market.
The article “The Future of Small Business Lending” as posted in December 2016 by the Moody’s Analytics team in “Risk Perspectives” (April 2017) .
The article “The Fintech 2.0 Paper: rebooting financial services” by Santander InnoVentures, in collaboration with its partners Oliver Wyman and Anthemis Group (June 2017.
Below is a point-by-step introduction of the arguments mentioned in the articles and how the potential of the YCS initiative can be explained and understood. Quotes of the articles are mostly 1:1 copied from the original articles.
- Streamline the collection of borrower information. Lenders commonly complain that small business information does not provide sufficient detail to make a lending decision.
The YCS application is precisely the kind of advanced software-as-a-service (SaaS) system that provides a single, integrated solution for managing the entire credit life cycle, enabling easy and quick processing of data. The design of our application facilitates the extension of the “IHF-credit”. The IHF-credit, short for “In-house Financing Credit”, is an Asset-Based Financing concept remotely echoing old-school invoice financing concepts. The necessary borrower information is indeed streamlined up to the smallest detail and processed in a fully automated way in order to prepare for lending decisions.
The answer to the following considerations of Santander:
(the YCS application incorporates…)
- Fintechs have two unique selling points: better use of data and frictionless customer experience
- Collaboration is the key: the strengths and weaknesses of both banks and fintechs mean that both will often do better by cooperating rather than by competing. New digital businesses must either grow quickly or die. Banks can offer fintechs immediate scale and critical mass through access to demand.
- Risk management and pricing: Collateral management is a key element of risk management. Better data on the quality and condition of collateral provides more accurate assessment and pricing of risk.
- Leverage proven rating models for standard loans.
To confront this challenge, our business concept was designed differently from suggested by the Moody’s team. The Moody’s article focuses (implicitly) on the conditions for a general lending practise, not differentiating between the different asset categories that may serve as collateral. In fact, asset-based finance has been the increasing focus of development in business lending since the 1950’s. Starting out with mortgage based finance, the first mature segmented asset based lending market came into existence. Leasing of cars and machinery followed, after its segmented asset status was unambiguously secured by relevant regulation. Invoice financing was a logical next step in the development. However, the development of this segment suffered from the lack of concrete possibilities to track and (legally) collateralize the invoices, resulting in a compromised status and high pricing.
Based on current digital possibilities, automation and an ingenious structure, the IHF-credit invoice financing concept overcomes the suggested need of a “substantial and reliable dataset reflecting
historical small business defaults”. Instead, the (learning) data set of the SaaS system itself provides for a wide range of cross-sectoral and longitudinal confrontations that allows to focus on the specific risk assessment of the lending exposure. Furthermore, it is independent of arbitrary sector categorizations and subjective interpretations like the state of the business cycle, sector developments and other. Rather, the system statistically predicts a specific business default, based on its idiosyncratic data instead of deriving the default chance from the subjective and ponderously (man-processed) application of general historic data to the specific client base.
The answer to the following considerations of Santander:
(YCS aims to be…) “Being smarter with smart data”
- Digital technology has greatly increased the volume of data available. However, the banks have found it difficult to use this new data to create value for their customers and themselves. In contrast, online retailers and social media firms have found ways to create value from data.
- Banks are not nearly creative or enterprising enough in their attempts to use data to offer better products or cut operating costs.
- Banks could take advantage of the specialised expertise at fintech companies by engaging these firms to perform the required work or by acquiring them. Partnerships between banks and fintechs would create a powerful combination of information, supplied by the bank, and innovative analytical tools, supplied by the fintech.
- Update processes. The key issue here is the time it takes for a lender to process a loan application and disburse funds – the time-to-money.
Since the IHF-credit is based on the flow of invoices on a fully automated basis, the time-to-money is determined by the technical process of connecting the systems and standard administrative procedures. The initial (quantative) risk-assessment process is standardized and is accompanied by a short procedure of qualitative assessment of the SME’s management. The structure simultaneously guarantees a fully automated monitoring activity allowing for a learning early-warning algorithm that may serve just as well as a basis for monitoring and risk assessment of financing that is related to other asset based financing segments.
The concept comprises the credit activities to be developed on a local basis, presuming that the information available within the local community will contribute implicitly and explicitly to the qualitative (initial and monitoring) assessment.
- Upgrade infrastructure. Systems-related efforts should focus on removing duplicate tasks (e.g., multiple instances of keying in the same data)
Since the system is fully integrated, duplicate tasks are non-existent. In fact, the overall cost of ownership is reduced to the level that pricing of the IHF-credit will be very attractive considering the actual conditions of (invoice) financing, especially in the SME segment.
- Learn from the data. High-performing organizations will extract meaningful data to understand key performance indicators and meet audit and reporting requirements.
The Saas platform will incorporate the information flow on a continuous basis. Specific tools for analysis make use of the most meaningful data and allow for a learning system. Strict discipline and well-defined processes are guaranteed by the fully automated processing of the data and ensure that the data is accurately captured and maintained.
The answer to the following considerations of Santander:
(YCS realises the condition of…) “Embedding distributed ledger technology (a distributed ledger is a network that records ownership through a shared registry)”
- In contrast to today’s transaction networks, distributed ledgers eliminate the need for central authorities to certify ownership and clear transactions.
- Transactions can be made to be irrevocable, and clearing and settlement can be programmed to be near-instantaneous, allowing distributed ledger operators to increase the accuracy of trade data and reduce settlement risk.
- Systems operate on a peer-to-peer basis and transactions are near-certain to be correctly executed, allowing distributed ledger operators to eliminate supervision and IT infrastructure, and their associated costs.
- Each transaction in the ledger is openly verified by a community of networked users rather than by a central authority, making the distributed ledger tamper-resistant; and each transaction is automatically administered in such a way as to render the transaction history difficult to reverse.
- Almost any intangible document or asset can be expressed in code which can be programmed into or referenced by a distributed ledger.
- A publicly accessible historical record of all transactions is created, enabling effective monitoring and auditing by participants, supervisors and regulators. It is only a matter of time before distributed ledgers become a trusted alternative for managing large volumes of transactions.
- Distributed ledgers can increase investor confidence in products whose underlying assets are now opaque (such as securitisations) or where property rights are made uncertain by the role of central authorities.
Conclusion: Our view of the future of SME financing
We enthusiastically agree with the main conclusions of the reference articles The Future of Small Business Lending” and “The Fintech 2.0 Paper. We pointed out that our business concept deals effectively with the challenges as formulated in the articles.
Whilst Fintech 1.0 has brought only minor disruptions to the banking market, mainly in the areas of payments, credit and personal financial advice, advances in technology and growing investment in fintech set the scene for more radical change like in the case of the YCS business concept.
It appears from the literature that a huge percentage of the SME financing need, ranging from 25% to 50%, is related to invoice financing. Therefore, to crack the code of efficiently serving that specific financing segment, leads the way to serving the SME business lending needs best. In this case Fintech 2.0 means a “seamless specialisation” across a core element of the value chain whereby a number of providers combine to deliver a cheaper and easier-to-use proposition to end customers in the field of Invoice Financing.
Expanding that view, we hold that the future of SME financing is balanced, compartmented asset based financing. That is, financiers specializing in specific asset categories will finance the parts of the assets of the SME of their interest and specialization. In this view, the total set of lenders specializing in specific asset related lending products, combined with general financiers of equity and an array of mezzanine financing forms, will serve the total finance need of the SME.
Since all financeable assets on the balance sheet represent foremost stock quantities, whilst the invoices are a clear-cut flow category comprising real time information on a continuous basis, other financiers may well want to draw on the YCS Saas data to enrich and advance their monitoring and early warning credit assessment systems.
In this view Banks should be clear about where their market advantages and institutional strengths lie and collaborate with the fintech industry where they fall short. The same goes for the fintech industry in general and YCS in particular: to achieve Fintech 2.0. collaboration with banks (and/or vested interests) incorporates wisdom, market expertise, trusted brands and if so required a banking licence.
Introduction to the workings of the YCS Platform
Scope of the IHF platform
Your Capital Support (YCS) provides SME loans in the form of accounts receivable financing without legal transfer of invoices as happens in the case of regular factoring.
In recent years, small business owners—especially those who rely on their invoices being paid in time—have suffered from a lack of access to capital. This has put a strain on what was once a mutually beneficial arrangement: entrepreneurs would borrow money to grow their companies and banks would profit through interest. Through the working of its platform YCS restores this symbiotic relationship.
Your Capital Support (YCS) is the Turnkey Provider of the IHF Credit
The services and software required to provide IHF Credit are offered by Your Capital Support (YCS). YCS acts as the linchpin between investors and SMEs with the following tasks:
- Partnering with investors as investment clients
- Lending the investment of capital funds and senior debt to meet financing needs of SMEs generating attractive returns
- Acquiring and overseeing SMEs as financing clients
- Operating the online platform to provide financing to SMEs
Your Capital Support (YCS) acts as a linchpin between funding investors and SME’s as a “double-sided platform”. However, SMEs are the Clients, because they make use of the “product” i.e. the IHF-credit.
Not every SME can make use of YCS financing. YCS will target SMEs that meet certain requirements during the application. The general requirements for SMEs are:
Size: YCS will follow local definitions of SMEs. The definition provided by the European Union—also used in Belgium for example—serves as a starting point for qualifying Clients:
- Micro-sized: Annual revenue of € 2 million or less
- Small-sized: Annual revenue between € 2 million and € 10 million
- Medium-sized: Annual revenue between € 10 million and € 50 million
Revenue Model: YCS financing is meant for SMEs that invoice their clients for goods and/or services. Businesses that charge upfront or deal in cash transactions are NOT a fit for YCS financing.
Years in Operation: YCS requires financial transparency. An SME’s financial history—spanning at least three full calendar years—is necessary to make an informed credit decision in regards to (A) whether to provide financing and (B) under which conditions.
Debtor Spread: To minimize risk, the general guideline is that ~80% of an SME’s revenue is generated by at least 20% of the debtors. An SME that receives a disproportionately high amount of revenue from a few clients is considered too risky.
Geography: YCS financing will initially be provided to SMEs in Belgium, with simultaneous plans to expand to The Netherlands and Luxembourg.
Adjustments and exceptions can be made—based on a qualitative conversation with a business owner—and these will be reflected in the contracts with Clients.
Revenue model for funders
Your Capital Support (YCS) will provide financing to SMEs with the help of capital investments (subordinated loans) and senior debt from private investors and institutional financiers. In Belgium, the intended remuneration for capital investments are currently under discussion in the range of:
- Capital investments (subordinated loans): Euribor + 3.5% per year
- Institutional financiers (senior debt): Euribor + 1.5% per year
The ratio between subordinated loans and senior debt will be at an acceptable level to give sufficient comfort to the funding partners. The pricing of the IHF-credit will be adjusted to local market conditions for funding.
YCS aims to be a financial partner for SMEs, enabling business owners to manage their working capital needs and facilitate growth for their companies.
Information is the cornerstone of YCS’s relationships with its Clients—and capital investors. SMEs provide in depth financial information and insight into their debtor portfolio. To secure the quality of SMEs, an initial credit assessment will take place according to a quantative and qualitative credit assessment procedure.
Organizational Structure / revenue model for strategic partners
To facilitate the start and roll-out of the YCS business model, strategic partners are foreseen that contribute to the roll-out of the model at a pan-European level and beyond. Intended strategic partners are financial institutions and business partners with local and/or international SME-scope.
- Digital Lending Assessment in a quick and transparent process
- Peer-to-peer lending with up to 400% senior leverage guaranteeing attractive interest rates and attractive lending returns for investors
- Revolving invoice financing facility raising new lending and investment opportunities for the SME to capture growth opportunities
- Asset based lending, referring to un an asset base that is used rather inefficiently today, or hardly at all
- Over-all lending potential of SME is significantly increased
- STP-structured digital connections guarantee smooth and faultless dynamic Bank-Peer -to-Peer -SME communication
- Real time monitoring enhances insight for lender and SME to improve CRM processes
- Independent back-office – no longer any dependency of blurred “banking policies”
- Back-office managed by human ware servicing independently the SME and the Lending platform
- Peer-to-Peer-SME community putting the client central, enabling SME lending to regain a human dimension
