The Receivables Exchange (“RecX”) is an auction based marketplace connecting large corporate sellers of trade receivables to a broad network of institutional buyers. Transactions over the Exchange are standardized and structured to result in a “true sale” of the receivables, thus offering balance sheet benefits to sellers and attractive risk-adjusted returns to buyers. The auction model provides corporations with a flexible, efficient and transparent channel to monetize receivables while providing investors access to the $17 trillion accounts receivable market. RecX has created approximately $5bn of liquidity since inception.
