UBF believes that there is an increasing demand for working capital solutions from Sri Lankan businesses seeking to improve their financial liquidity through alternative forms of finance. Hence it is an excellent opportunity to support the development of local businesses through the establishment of the Factoring and Working Capital Solutions unit.
