Factoring in 2012: a significant growth (+7.6%), but a slowdown is confirmed
Over 2012 as a whole, factoring transactions were up by +7.6% versus last year, with 186.5Bn euros.
Such a growth rate remains meaningful against the prevailing economic backdrop, but however mirrors a slowdown in activity. For the first time since the 2010 rebound, annual growth is below 10%.
