  • As a professional individual you may lose your professional status if made bankrupt and need to look for an alternative solution
  • As a creditor you need to manage your exposure to losses
  • As a credit manager within a company, you constantly receive notices of creditors meetings regarding bankruptcies and would like someone to evaluate these for you en-bloc at no charge
