FCI is the Global Representative Body for Factoring and Financing of Open Account Domestic and International Trade Receivables. FCI was set up in 1968 as a non-profit global association. With today close to 400 member companies in more than 90 countries, FCI offers a unique network for cooperation in cross-border factoring. Member transactions represent nearly 60% of the world’s international correspondent factoring volume.
FCI is a non-exclusive organization, open to any company which is providing Factoring Services or plans to set up Factoring Activities but also to service providers to the industry.
After 50 years of existence, FCI opened two more business lines: reverse factoring (FCIreverse and EDIreverse) and Islamic International Factoring.
FCI’s origins include a strong legal framework (FCI Constitution, Interfactor Agreement, General Rules for International Factoring-GRIF, Edifactoring.com Rules, Supplemental Agreement for Islamic International Factoring, General Rules for FCIreverse and FCI Rules of Arbitration), platforms for cross-border transactions (edifactoring.com and FCIreverse) and more than 50 years accumulated knowledge (FCI Academy).
