The financial industry has planned to phase out LIBOR reference rate starting January 1, 2022. In the US, the Secured Overnight Funding Rate (SOFR) has been determined to replace LIBOR.

Kyriba Supply Chain Finance (SCF) Demo and DiscussionA Streamlined Supply Chain Finance Solution 

Speakers: Alex Jackson, Elire Inc, and Mike Lomax, Kyriba

October 14th | 2 PM – 2:55 PM

To gain access to “captive” capital for investing in new market growth opportunities, companies can employ Supply Chain Finance (SCF), which gives suppliers the flexibility to “sell” approved invoices to financial institutions. Expanded working capital and more reliable client/vendor relationships are the result. Additionally, many firms want to meet consumer demands and investor preferences to do business with sustainable companies, by implementing environment and social governance (ESG) or corporate social responsibility strategies. To support this, organizations can use SCF as “Green Finance” through the association of the financing rate with specific ESG parameters.  

This session will explore the value of SCF in both the system capabilities and the financial institution partnerships that Kyriba builds through a module-based approach. This begins with “Cash Visualization” and builds through a customized payments feed, expansive fraud detection, complete connectivity, and a streamlined Supply Chain Finance (SCF) operation.
