Leveraging Supply Chain Finance

Supply Chain Finance (SCF) is now an established approach for increasing the value of your supply chain. By leveraging the relationships between buyers and suppliers, SCF facilitates suppliers’ access to cash and allows buyers to increase their own liquidity. However, not all that glitters is gold. Pitfalls in adopting and managing SCF programs can include reputational damage, accounting risk, and trust issues among buyers and suppliers – all reasons programs can fail to reach their targets.

Join us for this Supply Chain Finance webinar where Dr. Luca Gelsomino, Academic Director at the Supply Chain Finance Community and Senior Researcher at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, will illustrate the status of the market, trends, and future developments in the SCF industry. He’ll also touch upon the technological shifts in the industry worldwide, the role of sustainability in relation to SCF, and more.
