Melbourne, 28 February 2017 – Australia Ratings has affirmed its Operational Capability Assessment (OCA) to AssetWatch as ‘Superior’.

A ‘Superior’ operational capability ranking reflects AssetWatch’s operational and technical quality as a platform used to fund and manage trade receivable portfolios.

AssetWatch is an automated system that requires minimal manual intervention and includes comprehensive in-built quality controls and risk management features.

Australia Ratings analyst, Philip Bayley said “AssetWatch is a platform that is highly automated which eliminates a number of potential risks that may arise in a manual receivables management system. The platform has comprehensive system support allowing for efficient management and collection of trade receivables.” Mr Bayley added, “The controls built into the AssetWatch system are considered to be superior to those seen in similar systems elsewhere. Moreover, the experience of the management team and the extensive track record of the platform were also factors in affirming AssetWatch’s ‘Superior’ ranking.”

AssetWatch is a trade receivables platform that is owned and operated by Assetsecure Pty Limited (Assetsecure) and has been in operation for over 12 years. Assetsecure is a niche arranger of trade receivables financing among a disparate and diminishing group of trade receivables finance providers. Assetsecure also uses securitisation financing techniques to fund receivables purchase facilities ranging from $5 million to $100 million in size, with clients spread across industry sectors such as logistics, fuel wholesaling, automotive, equipment hire and manufacturing. AssetWatch contains a range of comprehensive controls, error detectors and risk management measures.
