Tradeteq, the innovative AI-driven trade finance investment platform, has partnered with World of Open Account (WOA) to become Chair Partner of their “receivables as an investment class – funding and capital” Learning Lab.

WOA’s Learning Labs gather members of the WOA community to provide insight and knowledge into four areas of strategic importance to the open account ecosystem: People and Talent; Risk and Regulation; Products and Markets; Innovation and Development.

The “receivables as an investment class” Learning Lab will work to raise awareness of account receivables’ potential as an asset class. The recent application of technology to account receivables has allowed for their development into an investable asset class by bridging the information gap between investors and trading companies. As one of the lowest-risk and easiest-to-manage asset classes, such investments have become increasingly attractive to institutional investors – if they can overcome the information gaps that prevent credit scoring (exactly the service provided by Tradeteq).

“We are pleased to be partnering with WOA on their ‘receivables as an investment class’ Learning Lab,” says Christoph Gugelmann, CEO and co-founder of Tradeteq. “The potential for such assets is immense and, as part of the Learning Lab, we hope to bring attention to this highly-valuable area of trade finance by providing the necessary knowledge to community members.”

Aimed at anyone considering investing in receivables, the Lab will provide a centre for information as well as innovative insight on account receivables: producing highly relevant and timely articles, webinars, presentations, surveys and polls, as well as white papers and case studies, meetings and panel interviews.

“We are thrilled to have Tradeteq on board as a Chair Partner for our Learning Lab on receivables as an asset class,” says Erik Timmermans, co-founder of WOA. “Their expertise in this sector will be invaluable in steering the Lab’s activities and topics of interest, keeping on top of key developments and changes within the industry.”

While WOA facilitates the activities of each Learning Lab, they operate as independent, individual units led by a Chair Partner and members of the WOA Community Expert Groups who steer the direction and content of the Lab. The Learning Labs function at the heart of WOA’s “INSPIRE” activities, the aim of which is to provide community-led centres of knowledge and expertise – allowing members of the industry to make a difference in the areas that matter most for them.
