Factoring as a Form of Financing Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in ASEAN

Thi My Huong Do


Small and medium-sized enterprises have increasingly played very important roles, particularly in developing open economies and the ASEAN economic community. One of the biggest factors that hinders the growth of these firms is their lack of fund and limited access to financial sources. This writing, firstly, aims to illustrate that factoring can prove to be a popular tendency in fanancing small and medium enterprises in ASEAN by showing its considerable growing rate over the last two decades. In the second part, using the OLS, the paper also measures and discusses the determinants of factoring development in three financial markets including Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore.
