Supply Chain Finance: Fintech Vendor Overview

Fintech firms nimbly moving into rather massive global trade financing market

Mercator Advisory Group reports that supply chain finance is more accessible than ever and expanding through broadened fintech solution models.

The ongoing digital transformation of business-to-business (B2B) payments has been well chronicled by Mercator Advisory Group. Part of that transformation can be found in the advancement of alternative cash cycle finance capabilities, led by nonbank financial technology (fintech) vendors during the past 10 year. There is much debate about the actual opportunity for supply chain finance, probably as much as is there is confusion around the definitions. In the view of Mercator Advisory Group, the market is globally robust with a more than trillion dollars of estimated available open account financing still ripe for working capital improvements on either side of the supply chain.

In a new research report, Supply Chain Finance: Fintech Vendor Overview, Mercator Advisory Group delves into the current state of this global market and some of the varied fintech solutions available for companies of all sizes.

"Mercator Advisory Group continues to advocate that corporations of all sizes improve their working capital expertise and systems flexibility to help achieve optimal cash management results. These capabilities have been greatly modernized by the financial technology industry during the past 10 years” commented Steve Murphy, Director of Mercator Advisory Group’s Commercial and Enterprise Payments Advisory Service, author of the report. “We also believe that banks continue to play a primary role for liquidity in trade finance solutions, most typically in traditional trade, but technology advances in alternative finance are now more firmly in the hands of both recent start-ups and mature fintechs, who often represent the client-facing solutions accessed and used by both corporates and banks.”

The document is 23 pages long and contains 7 exhibits.
