Global SME funder, Bibby Financial Services (BFS), has won two awards at the BCR Receivables Finance International Awards 2018.
BFS was awarded SME Finance Provider of the Year and Independent Invoice Finance Provider of the Year at the awards ceremony, which took place at The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London on 14 March 2018.
Richard Carter, CEO Europe & Asia at BFS said: “We aim to be the SME funder of choice for ambitious businesses worldwide and to win two awards is a magnificent achievement.
“We are delighted with these accolades and both pay testament to the hard work and commitment of our teams across the world.”
BCR Publishing is a leading provider of news, market intelligence, events and training for the global receivables finance industry.
The international awards are open to all businesses related to receivables finance, including banks, non-banks, technology companies, fintech businesses, consultancies and legal advisors.
Richard Carter added: “What makes us unique is that we take a relationship-based approach to supporting our clients, and this is something they tell us other financial services businesses are increasingly moving away from.
“We are currently seeing great success in developing cross-border funding deals, supporting businesses trading internationally, and this is something we look forward to building-on throughout the course of 2018 and beyond. Today, our global funding capability is more than £1bn and this gives us scope to further grow our support for SMEs across the world, contributing to both national and international economic growth.
“I would like to offer my thanks and appreciation to our teams across the world for their dedication in supporting our clients.”
BFS supports 10,400 businesses worldwide, through more than 40 operations in 14 countries. It provides working capital, cashflow and foreign exchange services, helping SMEs to grow and thrive in both international and domestic markets.
