Boston, September 10, 2013 - Import and export trade flows are growing at a staggering pace in the Asia-Pacific, and supply chain finance (SCF) is impacting supply chain processes and flows. While SCF is on the agendas of major banks in emerging Thailand, developing Indonesia, and more mature Australia, not all banks perceive technology as a necessary support for SCF-related programs, and not all banks engage in important SCF-related collaboration. Which regions and banks really need technology, and what services do they require? And how can additional services take root as a result of collaboration between banks and their corporate clients?
Based on January to June 2013 Aite Group surveys of and interviews with executives at major banks in Thailand, Indonesia, and Australia, this Impact Report by senior analyst Enrico Camerinelli analyzes SCF adoption levels in countries that display high levels of growth, assesses the current state of SCF adoption among banks operating in the Asia-Pacific region, considers the importance of collaboration between banks and their corporate clients, and provides practical guidance on how to implement programs that close the gap between corporate demand and bank SCF supply.
