Supply Chain Finance is defined as the use of financing and risk mitigation practices and techniques to optimise the management of the working capital and liquidity invested in supply chain processes and transactions. In practice, SCF is generally used to describe buyer-led receivables finance structures (also known as reverse factoring).

Igor Zax, Managing Director of Tenzor Ltd, published a new article, Receivables Finance in Context of Working Capital Management in TRF News (Trade and receivable Finance News, a major publication by BCR).
Editorial comment states “Igor Zax’s article in today’s trfnews, ‘Receivables Finance in the Context of Working Capital Management’, reminds us of the value of looking back at the history of modern supply chains and how working capital management, and hence factoring and supply chain finance, has developed from this. It also reflects on the potential frailty and dangers that over exposure to some supply chain structures can bring.
On late payments he says: “just a couple of weeks delay on 30 day terms increases working capital consumption by one-and-a-half times.” I wonder how many factors use such direct terms in their advertising material. If they do not, perhaps they should consider it, particularly as the trend is for larger companies to use receivables finance, and it is those companies in particular that tend respond well to the use of such analytic sound bites.”
