Chain Finance is a trading name for working capital, trade finance, supply chain finance & international business development services and solutions.
Chain Finance Origins
Chain Finance sources its name from the financial supply chain, its original and core field of expertise.
KNOW MORE ABOUT THE FINANCIAL SUPPLY CHAIN
Although supply chain deals with physical delivery of the goods and services, it is not possible to keep it going without the flow of money between various entities. For every physical movement of goods between supplier and buyer, there exists a financial flow traveling in the opposite direction.
Therefore the Supply Chain can be divided into:
> The physical supply chain can be defined as the activities involved in planning and executing the movement of goods and their documentation i.e. the processes involved in taking goods from the raw materials stage, through production to the ultimate delivery to the end-consumer.
> The financial supply chain describes the activities involved in planning and executing payments between trading partners i.e. the end-to-end trade processes and information that drive a company’s cash, accounts, and working capital.From a buyer’s perspective, this involves the full procurement-to-payment process (purchase-to-pay cycles). For the seller, it is the order-to-cash cycle.
Financial supply chain management goal is to address these processes in order to achieve a range of benefits that include improved efficiency and visibility across the supply chain and a more favorable working capital position by optimizing accounts payable & receivable, cash management, risks and transaction costs.
The Financial Supply Chain is increasingly recognised as an area offering significant potential for generating bottom-line improvements and creating competitive advantage. According to many studies, “a typical billion-dollar company spends approximately $27 million annually for unnecessary working capital and inefficient processing functions because they lack visibility and performance into the Financial Supply Chain and receivables.”
