Metalshub embarked on a quest to find an ideal Embedded Finance partner to help orchestrate capital for its supplier base. Recognising the distinct challenges of its customer industries, such as high-value transactions, production-related liquidity cycles, and the cyclical nature of their operations, Metalshub sought to elevate the financial support available to its suppliers by providing receivable financing (forfaiting) directly through its software.
WALBING Cash Embed integration has seamlessly connected Metalshub’s software to the WALBING’s large pool of institutional investors seeking to acquire receivable assets.
By having instant access to trade finance instruments through Embedded Finance, Metalshub suppliers can now finance individual transactions with buyers who fall outside their existing credit coverage, all while safeguarding their liquidity. The suppliers’ del credere risk is entirely eliminated as all WALBING receivable sales are true sale.
