Strong business momentum and robust outlook for 2014

Global Supply Chain Finance Ltd. (GSCF) is proud to culminate another busy and successful year with a number of new programs activated in Q4-2013 and more expected to close in Q1-2014, adding over USD 1.5 billion in limits under management. These include various types of Supply Chain Finance (SCF) programs – from factoring and distribution financing to multi-supplier hybrid receivables, a product type created by GSCF.

“I am delighted to see our funding partners increasingly engaging us as servicer of their SCF programs. They are realizing more and more the significant benefits of outsourcing the daily management of transactions to us, particularly in terms of credit sensitive processes, credit risk mitigation solutions and enhanced controlling achieved. These are gradually becoming key success factors for banks given Basel III requirements and the subsequent search for lower risk-weighted assets. GSCF’s proven automated processes actively contribute to achieving this”, said Kendall Stevens, CEO

Plans for our ever-evolving web portal

Rose Mony Chirayath, COO explained: “Over the past 10 years that I have been with GSCF, I’ve had the privilege to work on the inception of our technical platform GIS (GSCF information services) and on all of its subsequent enhancements. I remain as passionate about it as on the first day and amazed at the high level of creativity and inspiration of our technical team, strongly supported by our Business Development team. In 2014, we will launch a new set of innovative features aimed at further enhancing the GIS user experience and access to the relevant data, as well as widening the range of reporting capabilities amongst others. Stay tuned, you will be positively surprised soon.”

Alternative Distribution Financing (ADF): Our next success story

As the leading servicer in the SCF marketplace, GSCF remains at the forefront of product development and deeply involving itself in the structuring side of the business. Having identified a clear market need for non-direct bank funding of SCF programs, we launched in 2013 our own financing vehicle, a bankruptcy remote entity domiciled in Switzerland and Luxembourg: Alternative Distribution Financing (ADF). Since founding the company, we have received strong interest from corporates as well as from different types of potential investors, and have a very busy pipeline for 2014. As a result, we have bullish growth expectations for this part of the business, which we foresee will soon become our next success story.
