Factris, FinTech, Netherlands, Aegon Asset Management, SME Financing, EuropeAmsterdam-based FinTech Factris received a €50 million funding line from global investment business Aegon Asset Management (Aegon AM) in April 2023. The company had recently reached the milestone of financing €1 billion in invoices in Q1 of 2023.

With this additional line of funding, Factris is on course to expand its SME financing services into Estonia in Q2 of 2023, as well as provide more business funding opportunities in existing EU markets – NetherlandsBelgiumPolandLithuania, and Latvia.

The new funding line complements other partnerships whose funding helped Factris finish 2022 with strong organic growth that included a 58% increase in cumulative financing volume year over year for their pan-European market and an 83% financing-volume increase in the Netherlands alone.

Factris says the 2022 results surpassed expectations for a year marred by the economic consequences of the ongoing war in Ukraine, Brexit, trade wars, sanctions, record inflation, and rapid interest rate hikes.

Factris CEO Brian Reaves sees Aegon AM’s funding line as further evidence that Factris’ alternative approach to financing is the way to the future. He commented, “Without our exceptional risk management results supported by our team and technology, we would not be eligible to work with such outstanding institutional investors. Thanks to strong partners like Aegon AM, we have the capacity with our tech-powered financing solutions to support struggling business owners right when they need it.”

Aegon AM’s Head of Insured Credit and Trade Finance George Nijborg shared similar sentiments, commenting, “We are excited to continue being at the forefront in financing European SMEs and in backing Factris’ impressive growth. The strong partnership established with Factris shows that creating attractive financing solutions for institutional investors helps plug the gap needed to support SMEs, which are the backbone of European economies.”
