FGI T.R.U.S.T.™ and Validis to Partner

NEW YORK, New York, May 7, 2024- FGI Worldwide LLC (“FGI”), a global leader in commercial finance, and Validis, the open accounting API, have partnered to integrate their respective credit management and data extraction platforms. This strategic partnership will allow businesses sharing their Accounts Receivables (A/R) data with lenders via Validis, to manage their credit insurance and risk mitigation in real-time on FGI’s T.R.U.S.T.™ platform, without any need for manual processing or interruption, creating efficiencies and saving resources.

Credit Insurance management relies on tracking detailed A/R data. Validis makes sharing this data painless for businesses, while their standardized data structure allows lenders and brokers to quickly identify risks and extract insights. T.R.U.S.T. ™ is a cloud-based platform that enables corporations, brokers and lenders to optimize credit insurance policies and automate credit risk monitoring. Through this partnership, changes in A/R can be automatically passed through to T.R.U.S.T. ™ via a Validis secure data feed.

“The Validis team have built an excellent reputation across the corporate and lender markets,” commented Paul Bower, Director, FGI Technology. “Their technology is an increasingly important component for Asset Based Lending (ABL) in the UK, making them a natural fit for FGI as a business. The team impressed us with the quality of their data models and mission to help businesses and lenders make smarter, more informed financial decisions quickly.”

“ABL is an ideal credit product for both businesses and lenders. The T.R.U.S.T.™ platform is a unique offering that gives lenders peace of mind when managing risk,” added James Hillier, Head of FS EMEA, Validis. “FGI’s platform provides specialist and real-time access to Credit Risk and Insurance, and the team are experts in what they do. FGI understands the importance of access to quality data, so it was an ideal complement for our operation. Their geographical presence in Europe and the US also aligns with our own.”
