Our Profile

BNP Paribas Commercial Finance is part of the BNP Paribas’ international Asset Based Lending offering. BNP Paribas is the European market leader in terms of geographical coverage. We have fully-fledged businesses in 17 countries and a market leading position in many of them. 


BNP Paribas’ offering as it stands today, was formed from the integration of the Fortis Commercial Finance worldwide network into BNP Paribas in October 2011. Whilst it is unique in the industry with its capability to fund in many widely differing markets through its teams of locally domiciled in-country experts, the business remains under European leadership. We fund both single jurisdiction, in country opportunities and cross border situations. But, rather than a network of separate entities, all companies under the BNP Paribas umbrella work as a global team, sharing best practice and cooperating closely. Our ability to call on seasoned professionals across Europe is a major factor in our success.
We have more than 50 years of expertise across Europe that we bring to bear in serving companies of different sizes, in different industries and in different stages of development.

In addition to our undoubted cross border presence, we offer a broad and comprehensive portfolio of services, which we tailor depending on local market conditions to meet the needs of companies of many shapes and sizes. These services include, Invoice Discounting, Non-Recourse Receivables Purchase and Asset Based Lending.

As an active member of the global factoring association FCI, we are able to provide first-rate Export-Import factoring solutions across the world.

In the UK, BNP Paribas Commercial Finance has been present for over a quarter of a century and is packed full of experienced people who have grown up in the industry. Having begun life as a simple invoice discounter, we have broadened the product range in line with developments in the UK market to become a full ABL player with the capability of funding not just receivables and inventory, but also the fixed assets of commercial real estate and plant and machinery. Additionally, we also benefit from a non-recourse receivables purchase offering with significant experience in the field.

Every customer is different. BNP Paribas Commercial Finance is committed to meeting the precise needs of every company with which we partner. We listen to your needs and customise our solutions in order to best match those needs and your business.
