This thesis aims at outlining the importance and the value proposition of Financial Supply Chain Management to increase shareholder value. According to recent studies a huge amount of working capital is tied up in the Supply Chain. Process-oriented activities in the Supply Chain such as quali cation, invoice and claim management and nance-oriented activities such as management of working capital, valorization and capital appropriation and demand release working capital bundled in the Supply Chain. This is realized by a reduction in Days-Sales-Outstanding, which consequently shortens the Cash-to-Cash Cycle. Thus leading to higher liquidity and increased shareholder value. Understanding that a huge potential lies in Financial Supply Chain Management can make the difference between competitiveness or failure, especially in times of crisis, as we experience right now with the global nancial crisis.
