Supply Chain Finance (SCF) can be an important tool in unlocking liquidity in the supply chain and offering favourable conditions to suppliers. But the myriad of SCF programmes and providers can leave even the best of us confused.

You may be wondering…

 Whether banks are the best providers, or you should be looking at specialised SCF platforms; how do these differ?

 What is the difference is between buyer and supplier-led programmes?

 What is the advantages of SCF for buyers?

 Whether there are any risks associated, and how to mitigate them?
