I do enjoy following the build up to general elections. It might change, but the whole show seems devoid of any focus on how UK businesses will be supported going forward. Not sure whether that is a good or bad thing right now, but I do know that it’s a good time to secure finance. In my view that might alter over the next couple of years as the implications of Brexit finally become clearer.
On 25 May, we are holding our second conference event of 2017, this time in the main Banqueting Room at Glaziers Hall at London Bridge. Our focus will be on the current range of debt finance available to business looking to grow – and which debt models can match different business models. The range of funding options really has grown in the past 4 year, filling the gap left by the main banks’ partial retreat from the SME market. I am delighted to say that Andy Davis, who is launching a major piece of research on the SME debt market (supported by CSFI, his report “From Peer to Here” launches this month), will start the afternoon by giving an overview of current market trends.
Our last two conferences have sold out, so don’t delay in ordering your ticket – we have a limited number of free tickets specifically for trading SMEs looking for finance.
I’m also delighted to announce PAY4 as an additional key sponsor for this event. PAY4 supply revolving credit facilities, of up to £1m, for UK Growth Companies. You can meet the team on the day!
I look forward to seeing you on 25 May
Chris Dines, CEO of Informed Funding
