Adding Creditsafe’s due diligence data to the Fineon Export Finance platform enables insurers and financial institutions to benefit from best-in-class compliance measures for cleared and credit-checked quality deals. The data mitigates fraud risks that might occur in cross-border trade financing, allowing exporters to make speedy credit decisions.
The collaboration will optimise information sharing between the two companies and allow the cross-matching of data for insights on credit risks and compliance checks. The aim is to automate the decision-making procedure to facilitate the financing of cross-border trade. This will drive greater productivity, visibility and industrial growth in the market.
Emma Germano, Country Manager, Belgium and Luxembourg of Creditsafe, said: “As a proud member of the FinTech family, Creditsafe is very excited to announce the collaboration with Fineon Exchange by providing data to their innovative Export Finance Marketplace Platform."
She continued “the market is experiencing a change from ‘big data’ to ‘focus data’, where business information is the fuel to these solutions that are the engines for the future Credit and Risk Management.”
Michel Kilzi, Managing Partner at Fineon Exchange, said: “Compliance is a strategic component within any trade finance transaction, including export finance, as it provides both fraud prevention measures for funders and faster credit approval for exporters, thereby enabling us to produce compliant export finance solutions for our European exporter client base and our international funding partners.”
On the partnership Kilzi added: “In Creditsafe, we found the market-leading credit insight partner with a wealth of industry expertise and know-how that can help develop our mutual businesses and grow our respective market share.”
