Supply Chain Finance
A BPO (Bank Payment Obligation) is an irrevocable undertaking given by one bank to another bank that payment will be made on a specified date after successful electronic matching of data according to an industry-wide set of rules (URBPO). For the first time ever, end-to-end trade finance transactions are being processed in a fully automated mode without the drawback of traditional trade. Standard Chartered Bank is proud to lead the market in pioneering the first ever fully automated BPO transaction leveraging on Straight2Bank, meeting our clients’ needs for a trade finance solution that combines security, speed and convenience.
Based on Standard Chartered Bank's in-depth understanding of the objectives and needs of the buyers/dealers and our client, Buyer/Dealer Finance is a tailor-made solution that provides financing to buyers for purchasing anchor products. This strengthens the sales leg of the supply chain and improves the anchor’s liquidity and working capital. Dealers are assessed primarily based on the strength of the supply chain relationship. Buyer/Dealer Finance helps the anchor build channel loyalty and provides a steady source of finance to the dealer.
Leveraging our comprehensive network coverage and understanding of local markets, we provide Supplier Finance & Vendor Prepay together with our award-winning electronic channel "Straight2Bank" to our core clients. Our Supplier Finance Programme (SFP) provides financing to the anchor (buyer)'s suppliers with competitive pricing. Standard Chartered's SFP helps the anchor to reduce the transactional cost related to the supplier and to stretch the working capital by extending the credit period. Vendor Prepay (VPP) is an offering under Supplier Finance Programme, which meets the client (buyer, anchor)'s needs by combining the cash payment and trade finance.
