Treasury support for suppliers through supply chain
"There are also alternative [supply chain finance] support structures in use, in particular what is known as ‘deep-tier’ financing.
This approach sees treasury at end customers provide support not just to tier 1 suppliers, but also to those in tiers further along the supply chain.
Such suppliers are mostly smaller companies and more likely to be vulnerable to economic disruption."
