Addressing the financial difficulties of micro, small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), supply chain finance plays a crucial role in fostering a better industrial environment. This book aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of the latest developments in supply chain finance and help readers to understand the subject from new perspectives by exploring the following four questions: 1) How to solve SMEs’ financing difficulties with supply chain finance innovations? 2) How to prevent systemic risks during the course of development of supply chain finance? 3) How to develop a healthy supply chain ecosystem to support the development of supply chain finance? 4) What is the role that Internet technology and big data play in supply chain finance risk management? The discussions are richly illustrated and substantiated with concrete and detailed case studies of companies in China and Hong Kong, especially the Fung Group, and numerous examples that are related to the manufacturing, trade and distribution, and logistics industries, as well as the commercial sector.
