Secured Party Representative Services Continue To Grow


The demand for Secured Party Representative Services continues to grow, and the changing face of the asset based lending/factoring world is at the center of its growth. With new lenders bringing new methods with new ideas on how to utilize technology to infuse cash into various business types, the competition for customers is as fierce as ever with lenders reacting and adapting to the evolving landscape.

One of the tools relied upon by many to create prospect lists is a secured party search in UCC indices targeting specific secured parties, typically competitors. Such a search looks to uncover previously filed UCCs of the targeted secured party to learn who their debtors are on the UCCs—to learn the targeted secured parties’ customer list.

As this technique has become more and more prevalent, the need for secured parties to respond has grown along with it. How can secured parties perfect their security interests by filing a UCC without exposing their customer list to the public record?

The answer is Secured Party Representative Services by First Corporate Solutions. By choosing to enroll, a lender begins to remove its name as secured party from the public record and UCC indices, therefore making the secured party search ineffective.
