The Course

For a financial service that has a tripartite win‐win‐win value, current market adoption of Supply Chain Finance (SCF) is still in its infancy. The unused potential for SCF is considerable” and double‐digit growth rates can be expected in years to come. SCF benefits individual companies, but also complete supply chains and economies, by facilitating more and cheaper liquidity, based on large creditworthy corporates.

Supply Chain Finance is applicable in various stages in the supply chain and can be based on invoices, purchase orders, framework contracts or other ‘financeable’ assets. In the post‐shipment environment reverse factoring (RF) and dynamic discounting (DD) are nowadays mostly applied. Based on an approved invoice from a credit‐worthy buyer early financing is made available to its suppliers, leveraging a buyer’s cash reserves or by using funds from an external 3rd party financier.
