We are an ESG sustainability pioneer.

For a future-proof financial sector.

Sustainability is one of the most important issues of our time. Including for the financial sector. As a renowned provider in the financial market, we see this as an opportunity to take responsibility at an early stage.

In a process of exchange with various information and IT providers, we develop strategies for sustainable business. In doing so, we are guided by the ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) parameters defined by the UN.

We are certain of one thing: in tomorrow’s world, sustainability risks will influence pricing. The more sustainable companies operate, the lower the risks and the costs. We want to offer our customers solutions and financing conditions that are adapted to this.

We are one of the largest bank-independent factoring service providers.

We offer ISO-certified data security.

Effective protection against hackers.

Data security is our top priority. Our Information Security Management System (ISMS) protects our (and your) data from unauthorised access and misuse.

Regular checks reveal weak spots at an early stage. We deal with these immediately, and thereby minimise risks.

Are you sure about that? Absolutely! The efficacy of our ISMS has been certified by the internationally leading and recognised security standard ISO/IEC 27001 since 2017. This makes us proud, strengthens the security awareness of our employees, and gives our customers and business partners a feeling of reassurance about working with us.

Data protection is important to us, including beyond our own company walls. Our goal is to anchor this key topic at the core of our business, and to make it a key issue for all involved. That is why we are an active member of the industry association Society for Data Protection and Data Security (Gesellschaft für Datenschutz und Datensicherheit e.V.).

Numbers are our passion.

And that’s something we’re even proud of. That’s because they not only reflect our corporate success, they also stand for our values. For what drives us. For what makes us who we are.

  • 60 years of factoring experience give us in-depth market and industry knowledge. But we prefer to look ahead and constantly develop innovative, data-driven services.

  • We provide our clients with a limit volume of EUR 2,200 million. With this assurance, we promote the performance and competitiveness of companies.

  • 6,100 business clients place their trust in us. And we would like to say thank you in the form of a personal service, sustainable action and appreciation.

  • EUR 13 billion in processed receivables volume make us one of the largest bank-independent factoring institute groups in Germany. An independence that we are happy to pass on to our customers.
