CIT's supply chain finance solution

Supply chain finance (SCF) allows buyers to optimize their working capital by extending their payment terms while providing an on-demand pool of liquidity for their suppliers. Under this program, suppliers have the ability to sell their buyer approved receivables to CIT prior to maturity at a small discount. By aligning the needs of both the buyers and the sellers, it is truly a "win-win" opportunity and minimizes risk across the supply chain.
