Check back soon for more details about the next session.

The current cost-of-living crisis is being felt by consumers up and down the country. But this isn’t just a consumer issue. Increasing costs in energy, fuel and supplies is also challenging UK small businesses, many of whom will have already been hit hard by the impact of the pandemic.

Join Experian for our latest Commercial Insights webinar where we will uncover the severity of the cost-of-living-crisis for UK small businesses and use our commercial bureau data to provide insight into how the commercial market is responding. We will explore:

  • Current macroeconomic trends impacting small businesses
  • Lending patterns and volumes
  • Evolving credit scores
  • Business' ability to pay back existing credit
  • Rising first-party fraud amongst small businesses

Using this data, we can help shine a light on which segments with your portfolio may be at higher risk and in need of further support.

Want to attend but can't commit to the time?

Please do register for the webinar and should you not be able to attend, we can still share some details and further information with you.
