UK businesses are facing numerous challenges, such as high interest rates, high energy costs, and issues with customer confidence. Now, more than ever, it is important for commercial lenders to understand small business financial situations at a granular level, and on an ongoing basis.
A quarter of UK small businesses are showing resilience in the face of tough macro-economic conditions, presenting a ‘good risk’ for lenders, but to successfully determine which businesses are going to fail versus those best equipped to survive or grow, you need a full picture view of affordability, based on comprehensive data, advanced analytics, and forward-looking macro-economic forecasts.
One of our key strengths is our ability to continue to drive the story of the insights as they occur. 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. We explore all data, traditional bureau and other sources, relevant to the point in time that shed light on these emerging risks, and opportunities. Our latest webinar will provide you with the insights you need to navigate this complex lending landscape and optimise your commercial lending strategy.
