Topic Background:

It seems the latest and greatest technique for creating business efficiencies is “supply-chain management.” An important component of this is supply-chain finance. So what, exactly, is “supply-chain finance”? Although the term has been applied in a wide range of contexts, it has particular application to structures in which a bank provides financing to the suppliers of a bank customer. While the concept has roots in letters of credit and forfaiting, it is a new approach and is still mutating. Variations are known as “reverse factoring” and “approved invoice financing” and may involve “purchase order-invoice matching applications” and “bank payment obligations.” Importers are desirous of such solutions to the problem of making sure one’s suppliers are able to obtain dependable, low-cost financing. Banks are struggling with the risks and costs of developing new products and exporters are finding themselves faced with offers they must not refuse to join their customers’ supply-chain finance programs.
