- French bank BNP Paribas announced a partnership with factoring and asset-based lending solution provider Lenvi.
- BNP Paribas will leverage Lenvi’s Riskfactor platform to help mitigate risk and enhance operational efficiencies.
- Lenvi made its Finovate debut at FinovateEurope 2023 in March.
BNP Paribas announced last week that it is partnering with risk management solution provider for factoring and asset-based lending Lenvi. The French bank will deploy Lenvi’s Riskfactor as part of a multi-year contract to help the financial institution mitigate risk and improve operational efficiencies.
“Riskfactor allows businesses to harmonize responses and operations across jurisdictions, resulting in significant improvement in overall operations efficiency,” Lenvi CEO Richard Carter said. “We look forward to working together with BNP Paribas to support them in optimizing their risk management capabilities, while preventing fraud and improving overall efficiency. BNP Paribas’ commitment to risk management ensures a future-proof business.”
Riskfactor’s risk metrics analyze portfolios to identify unusual behavior, enabling users to investigate and take action on the highest risk accounts. Riskfactor automates risk processes and workflows, assigns follow up tasks for further investigation, and provides schedules to facilitate managing audits, debt verification, client and debtor reviews, and more. The platform oversees $63.4 billion (€60 billion) in lending and monitors more than 60,000 accounts worldwide. With deployments in 17 territories around the world, Lenvi notes that 90% of the receivables market in the U.K. use Riskfactor. BNP Paribas stated that it will deploy the complete Riskfactor product portfolio in eight countries in Europe.
“We are confident that Riskfactor will deliver on its promise and we are happy to have Lenvi’s support in implementing the solution,” BNP Paribas Global Head of Factoring Lionel Joubaud said.
BNP Paribas was founded in 2000 as the product of a merger between Banque Nationale de Paris (BNP) and Paribas. The ninth-largest banking group in the world by assets, BNP Paribas is the largest banking group in Europe. As of 2022, BNP Paribas had total assets of $2.8 trillion (€2.67 trillion).
Headquartered in Leeds, U.K. and founded in 1988, Lenvi demonstrated its technology at FinovateEurope earlier this year. Last month, the company announced partnerships with financial data provider Validis and secured finance technology company Lendscape.
