Decisions made by a corporate on its competitive strategy lead to a demand for certain competences in their supply chain. To obtain and secure these supply chain competences in the long run, there is a need for working capital throughout that supply chain. The supply chain finance (SCF) strategy is fundamental in supporting the supply chains capabilities in meeting the corporate’s competitive strategy and is gaining momentum across the globe. An increasing number of players have started exploring new, and continue providing existing, SCF solutions or SCF related offerings in this domain.

As an ‘SCF-provider’ going through the initial phase of creating or revising your SCF Strategy (or high-level goal of your SCF project), you can leverage the expertise of Capital Chains. Together we accelerate your progress throughout the various phases in setting up, implementing, supporting/enabling the roll-out and improving your SCF offering. The collaboration with Capital Chains is based upon a clear division of work and with different roles and responsibilities for each (sub)phase. Every phase is self-contained and provides you with the opportunity to make a balanced go/no-go decision.

In the end, our approach facilitates a thorough analysis and solid basis for any (investment) decision. With this basis, we turn financial supply chains into value creators, which makes us Financial Game Changers.
