The paper investigates in the relationship between supply chain management, financial information sharing and collaborative behavior to find out if there is any information sharing between different companies in a supply chain on the financial level and what could be the benefits from financial information sharing for the whole supply chain. The used method is a systematic literature review to answer the research question. The main findings show a strong relationship between information sharing on the financial level along supply chains and a positive impact on competitiveness and financial performance of the involved companies. Information sharing in supply chains has also a positive impact on the collaborative behavior of the companies and the level of trust, whereas the quantity of information sharing is not that relevant but the quality of shared information is much more important. Further research is recommended to find out if there are any differences in the research-results related to the position of the company it has in his supply chain, whether is it an original-equipment-manufacturer or a first-tier supplier or a raw-material supplier.
