In today’s globalized economies, industrial value chains span the globe, becoming ever more complex as manufacturers rely on interlocking networks of suppliers. Supply Chain Finance is helping to manage that complexity, reducing risk, supporting suppliers and releasing corporate cash for investment.
Over the past decade the sector has expanded rapidly in both scale and sophistication, with new technologies allowing startups to challenge the traditional providers of supplier finance. The Supply Chain Finance Community has supported this growth by bringing together solution providers, corporations and business schools to share ideas.
Today, the SCF Community manages events across the world, publishes white papers and reports, runs an annual awards scheme and produces the newsletter SCF Briefing. It remains a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to serving global supply chains.
