Spend Matters Almanac: Trade Financing

Trade Financing (which includes Supply Chain Finance) encompasses solutions that improve automation, liquidity, transparency, and trust in the financial supply chain. The ecosystem of financing solutions includes reverse factoring (or trade payable finance), dynamic discounting, procurement cards (p-cards), and other related capabilities. Providers bring a combination of financing, transaction processing platforms and onboarding services, whether natively or via partners. Benefits include a reduction in working capital, risk, risk mitigation costs, process costs, bank credit fees, and the cost of capital to less advantaged supply chain participants.
