$5.4trn Locked Up in Global Supply Chains

20th March, 2019

More than $5.4 trillion is locked up in unpaid invoices all over the world in vast supply chains that deliver the products and services that enable our global economy to function.

Companies both small and large cannot access the cash locked up in accounts receivable due to inefficient supply chains funded by cumbersome, traditional banks.

Greensill, the world’s leading provider of working capital finance, is changing this with a unique technology-driven approach that is helping to oil the wheels of the global economy and keeping supply chains all over the world running smoothly.

The latest global accounts receivable data were first published in Raconteur, where it was explained how Greensill makes finance available to all businesses cheaply, easily and seamlessly using the latest technology, financial innovation and capital markets. We call this process the democratisation of capital.
