Our Story

Capital Chains was founded in 2015 with the dream to introduce real change to the financial supply chain. With our extensive training experience on almost every continent on the globe, we now put our supply chain finance knowledge to work in consultancy projects. Since our founding, we have worked with large corporates and financial institutions with the aim to create value for them, as well as their (clients’) supply chain partners.

Capital Chains works alongside its clients, and with a solid understanding of what they need: results, not just reports. All of our projects are based on knowledge sharing and the creation of a shared vision for the future, be it short-term or longer term. Based on this shared vision, we use our proven approach to achieve the outcomes our clients need.

Our team is opinionated and not afraid to speak up for the values we stand for. But we also put our money where our mouth is, by agreeing on economic agreements that ensure that we only prosper if our clients prosper.

We turn financial supply chains into value creators as we are financial game changers.
