Factoring clients of CIT Group Inc. are being given the option of signing deferred purchase agreements as a precaution to protect their accounts, financial sources said.
Typically, when factors collect on behalf of client accounts, they first take title to the invoices. That’s the subject of a debate over who — the clients or CIT — would own the collected funds in the event of a bankruptcy. With a deferred purchase agreement, the clients would retain title to the funds even though CIT is making the collection requests. CIT executives declined comment.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
