The Commercial Lending Landscape has seen and met some incredible challenges this year. Alongside Government schemes
to assist business through the Covid crisis, lenders have modified their criteria, retired some products, and added new ones.
Businesses have not always qualified for the Government backed schemes, yet still require assistance. Others have taken advantage of the schemes to refinance, add working capital, even purchase new businesses. Paul will discuss the contours of the commercial lending landscape, giving an overview of the changed climate, the various lenders, and the products available to assist businesses. Some case studies will be given and discussed, displaying the opportunities businesses can find at the moment.
