The Two-Factors System / FCI (Factors Chain International)

Logo FCI

The Two-Factors System involves two factoring companies: the Export Factor in the supplier’s country (customer/ exporter) and the Import Factor in the importer’s country (debtor/buyer).

In most cases, funding comes from the Export Factor while the Import Factor, who may be more experienced to collect and insure receivables in his own market, manages collection and/or credit insurance.

The Two-Factors system is a very practical way to operate, especially if traditional “Direct” Export or Import Factoring does not suit the clients.

As FCI Full Member since 1988, we offer Export factors and their clients a unique value proposition including:

A rapid and frictionless funding process

  • Preliminary credit risk assessment response within 48 hrs for French buyers, 72 hrs for Non-French buyers
  • Key collection status data available within 24 hrs (i.e.disputes, payments etc.)
  • Same-day transfer of funds to our export partners as payment is received from the buyers
ONGOING TRACKING OF COMPANIES FINANCIAL HEALTH 20 credit analysts specialized by business sector backed by our in-house Credit Scoring.
