‘Inclusive Supply Chain Finance’
We believe that in the future, any supplier finance fund will be accessible to any company, large and small. Regardless of whether they are part of a large corporation’s supplier finance program. Liquidity trapped in the global supply chain will be liberated to fund growth where it’s most needed, among the startups and SMEs that will power tomorrow’s economies.
To get there, we need better ways of unlocking information about assets, and connect this to finance processes.
For this we need standardisation, interoperability and digital infrastructures between supply chain finance platforms, ERP software vendors, tech innovators, banks, alternative financiers, corporates and SMEs.
This leads to an environment of mutual trust and data sovereignity in which all ecosystem participants freely share risk and financial data with each other, and a governance regime that encourages such sharing. We’ll also need the technology tools to make this work: Blockchain, finance APIs, the SWIFT network, KYC registries, data controls, the Internet of Things and others all have a part to play in delivering liquidity to companies of every size, in every sector.
