Financing Future Supply Chains David Gustin - October 22, 2014 4:01 AM | Categories: Supply Chain Finance | Banks have gaps in their supply chain finance product portfolios and are not lending to certain segments of the market (e.g. SMEs). Banks complain of reduced loan demand, but that is only coming from sectors that they are still open to finance. With the rise of platform providers that augment information to enable transfer of assets, what will the market look like in 5 years? Vendors sell accounting and integration software to banks to facilitate factoring, trade finance, forfeiting, asset based lending, invoice discounting and other techniques.

The new platform providers like Basware, Taulia, Tungsten, Nipendo, Ariba and others have a major advantage here with both buyer and seller data. Misys, a financial services software company, is offering a short survey on this subject in exchange for the results. Visit here to take the survey!
