A new dawn in SME lending

It’s a new year and a good time for businesses to consider their financing needs for 2016. But what form will their funding mission take?

It is crucial to get the right finance for your company, whether debt or equity, secured or unsecured, crowdfunding, peer-to-peer lending, or old fashioned angel investment.

In this piece in association with thinkbusinessfinance.co.uk, we look at the options in the marketplace and what should influence your funding decisions.
