ORBIAN: Optimised Supplier Strategies and Ongoing Recognition

For 2022, Orbian has again been presented with CFI.co’s global award for Most Innovative Trade Finance Solutions. This award follows Orbian’s similar success in 2021, and confirms the company’s position as the most thoughtful and innovative provider of worldwide supplier finance services and solutions.


For 2022, CFI.co’s judging panel was most impressed with Orbian’s new regional control and analysis tools. As with the 2021 award based on Orbian’s development of fixed rate supply chain finance (SCF) solutions, these latest innovations not only allow for substantially greater collaboration and efficiency between Buyers and Suppliers; but are also genuinely unique propositions for Orbian in the global marketplace. Fixed rate solutions are providing great opportunities for suppliers to manage program costs in a world of less accommodative central bank policies. Likewise, the innovations underpinning 2022’s award will allow Buyers to understand exactly how their SCF programs can be used to support regional development agendas for local and national governments. Not only will this allow Buyers to support “levelling up” programs, but will also allow them to ensure optimised supplier strategies relative to local, national and supra-national subsidy arrangements.
