Relevant News for AREX European Market Ltd1

AREX works by using your accounts receivables as an asset to borrow against - so say you hit that big deal that?s going to pay out in 60 days, you can take that invoice to AREX where the credit ratings of the two companies are used to create an AREX contract that can be bid on by investors. If enough investors make the market you can receive the invoiced money immediately, at a discount. The idea was coined by Kim Forsman, founder of Maventa, the invoicing platform, which means that the team behind AREX isn?t exactly first-timers when it comes to invoice processing. Maventa was acquired early 2013 by Visma and was processing approximately 2 billion euros per month in receivables, a tenth of the Finnish GDP.
