Lisbon is Portugal’s hilly, coastal capital city. From imposing São Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old city’s pastel-colored buildings, Tagus Estuary and Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Nearby, the National Azulejo Museum displays 5 centuries of decorative ceramic tiles. Just outside Lisbon is a string of Atlantic beaches, from Cascais to Estoril.


Overlooking the stunning Gare do Oriente train station, this hotel embodies the vibrancy and charm of modern-day Lisbon.

Until now the international credit management, receivables management and debt purchase industries have been fragmented, led by the leading national and regional industry associations.

The international regulatory environment has never been more demanding on industry and business, the GDPR, cyber security and cross border data protection regulations very topical examples.
The ICCC, initially powered by the AICM, CICM, FECMA, FENCA, IACC and RMA was created to ensure legislation and regulation of data and privacy enhances protection and does not impede the extension of credit or the receivables management industry.
