What we do.
The essence of working capital finance is helping companies manage complexity, reduce risk, support suppliers, release corporate cash for investment, or to fuel growth.
Pactum achieves this via various structures for financing accounts receivable and accounts payable to enhance the working capital within the supply chain.
Since our receivable product launched in 2019, we have purchased over Euro 7bn of receivables without a single default or unpaid invoice. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and ability to put together solutions to fit both client and investor, how can we help you?
Pactum sets up and manages large accounts receivable (AR) finance programs for its clients.
In an AR program, a supplier (often referred to as the seller) can achieve benefits for itself and its buyers via selling its accounts receivable to us to fund growth, acquisition or even allowing them to potentially offer an extension of payment terms to their clients (the buyers).
Therefore, AR programmes can be a win-win for both sellers and buyers. It is a way for sellers to finance sales growth while reducing credit risk and improving working capital.
From the credit standpoint, AR is more complex to handle than accounts payable programmes. Still, it truly achieves credit risk diversification as it involves processing a diversified portfolio of obligors instead of dealing with the risk concentration inherent in accounts payable.
Balance-sheet-wise, AR solutions are an efficient way of financing working capital, as they do not impact debt and dramatically improve all participants’ cash flow and liquidity.
