In the world of providing the kind of financing that a company requires for normal everyday operation, traditional lenders like banks seem to put up negative barriers around business finance. Of course, it’s all about risk management but it can seem from the outside, especially from the viewpoint of an SME, that the banks are unapproachable. Ours is not to question why.
