Why are we changing the name from Factorscan to trfnews?

We want to assist you – our reader - in discovering the new huge opportunities offered by game changing, innovative and disruptive solutions which are rapidly taking shape and will prove to be the most efficient catalysts in creating liquidity in working capital structures. With current state of the art IT solutions facilitating creation and tailoring new financial services across an increasing number of industries and broader geographies, working capital finance programmes are embracing and interlacing more and more open account processing and financing options in a single offer.
