The Value of Supply Chain Sustainability

Prepare for the unpredictable. That may seem like an oxymoron to most, but for Procurement leaders at banks, insurance carriers and other financial institutions – mitigating the unpredictable is part of life.

Given the typical global bank can easily work with 30,000 – 50,000 suppliers, the complexity (and risk) is significant. Financial institutions have prioritized core third-party risks – such as financial viability and information security – for years.
