Among other financing methods that you can Broker:

Purchase Order Finance

Typically, importers and manufacturers secure a purchase order from a qualified buyer. Consider this as the first step in any sale. Provided these purchase orders be issued from financially strong companies, they can sometimes be used to secure financing. Under this arrangement, the finance company may be prepared to advance up to 100% of the price of raw materials, or the imported goods (as the case may be). Sometimes, this even includes the freight costs and insurance. Unlike factoring though, this is a true loan. The finance company takes title to the underlying goods allowing it to resell the items to liquidate the debt if need be. Any potential customers can expect to post additional collateral.

Work in Progress Finance

In some cases, a finance company will support the entire process of converting raw materials into finished goods. In addition, they will be providing working capital support that is particularly valuable the longer the production cycle. The customer gives up title to the goods and typically puts up additional collateral.

Asset Based Lending

Under a broader financing arrangement, a finance company can sometimes provide funding for all the assets of a business – accounts receivable, inventory, machinery and equipment, real estate and even intellectual property. In this case, the basis for credit rests on the risk profile of the customer itself. While these transactions take more time to consummate, they are more comprehensive and involve higher funding amounts than typical factored deals, making it worthwhile learning how to recognize and understand this technique.

Becoming a factoring broker can be a lucrative pastime or a full-time job.
