Supply Chain Financing (SCF)

It is now estimated that over 75% of the world trade is conducted on Open Account basis led by large corporates. This form of trade is cost saving, efficient and gradually even adopted by smaller corporates.

Once the buyers become comfortable with sellers/suppliers over a period time they opt to Open Account transactions and an agreement is reached with their financier. Due to the cost factor it is becoming more popular among corporates. These transactions are not done on an one off basis, rather it is merely done on a revolving basis. “Buy now and pay later” is the is the best term that describes the “Open Account”.

CIB Finance supports and facilitates SCF transactions to its clients.
