Abstract

At present, some financial institutions are providing SaaS services, B2B transaction services and logistics services to SMEs in their approach to supply chain financing, so as to better understand their corporate customers.

The financing demands of SMEs have always been fairly strong, but it is difficult for banks to be involved in this market considering the price-performance ratio. At present, some newly created supply chain financing solutions have started to make the financial services that are targeted at SMEs to become profitable. In the report Innovations in Supply Chain Financing, Celent examines four business models, features and cases.

“B2B based supply chain financing is suitable for industries with low concentration ratios, highly standardized products, high-frequency transactions and high SKUs. For instance, agricultural product industries, etc.,” says Hua Zhang, analyst in Celent’s Asian Financial Services practice.

This report provides an overview of China’s supply chain financing market, describes innovations, and provides recommendations to banks.

This report contains eight figures and two tables.
