What is the outlook for growth?

Many UK businesses will be looking forward, hoping the worst of the economic challenges they have faced during the cost-of-living crisis are behind us and wanting to see new opportunities for growth. There is still plenty of uncertainty in the economy and policy and this could impact investment confidence. It is therefore important for commercial lenders to understand small business financial situations at a granular level and on an ongoing basis.

Our Commercial Insights series provides commercial lenders with the latest economic and commercial lending trends, offering a data-driven view on new borrowing and credit performance, as well as how the economy is impacting small businesses. Aligning these insights to business-critical needs and priorities, we are in an unrivalled position to look back and forward thanks to our in-house economists and data experts and cut through the noise to show what this means for you.
