PrimaDollar is proud to join FCI, the voice of the global open account receivables finance industry.


FCI’s membership provides receivables-financing services globally in excess of €2.5 trillion per annum. PrimaDollar offers a new breed of cross-border trade finance which is based upon many of the technologies that are common-place amongst the FCI membership. With its mandate to promote open account receivables finance around the world, FCI continues to lead the industry, setting the standards, connecting the providers and driving innovation.


Peter Mulroy, Secretary General of FCI commented:


“We are pleased that PrimaDollar has agreed to join FCI. PrimaDollar’s innovative trade finance solutions are particularly important for emerging Asian exporters and PrimaDollar’s ability to support cross-border open account transactions for buyers on a standalone basis is an interesting development for our industry.


PrimaDollar’s products have been accepted by Islamic financial institutions as being Shari’a compliant – which is an area of significant interest for our membership, whilst also furthering FCI’s reach into countries where two-factor solutions are less well accepted. The FCI board will be lending its support where we can to the continued development of their business model and we wish PrimaDollar success going forward as a long-term member of FCI.”


Tim Nicolle, CEO of PrimaDollar Group commented:


“Both Peter and the FCI community have been very helpful to us, as we establish our new system of open account trade finance. We aim to expand the reach of open account trading by providing a solution that works for exporters large and small, where-ever they are based, but using a single-factor model.


We are already partnering with local banks in new markets for FCI. We expect to assist FCI, in time, to broaden the membership base and further strengthen the FCI’s voice in supporting open account trade finance around the world.”
