Since the financial crisis, business banking has changed materially. Traditionally most entrepreneurial businesses used their local High Street Bank for clearing services, working capital facilities and medium-term debt requirements. Nowadays, businesses have a large choice of debt product available when they consider accessing new borrowing including high street banks, alternative lenders, credit funds, private funders, etc. The credit process is also more stringent and complex than it was becoming elongated as business owners have to manage increasingly granular information and data requests from lenders.
Finding the right debt facilities for a business requires a deep knowledge of the market and debt products as well as solid relationships with debt providers.
