In the latest edition of the Business Finance Bulletin Rob Warlow looks at the findings from Close Brothers Business Barometer which reveals how reluctant some business owners are in hunting out new finance providers.
On the alternative finance scene Rob talks about Metro Bank’s 2014 results and how it’s living up to its aim of being regarded as the ‘bank for entrepreneurs’ by the range of business finance solutions it can offer.
Rob also reveals how the option to tap into the ‘crowd’ to fund expansion plans has been made easy with the news that FundingKnight has doubled the maximum amount it can arrange.
If you are a start up it is not easy to source finance but Rob looks at the news from the Start Up Loans company, the government supported loan company, on a new milestone being reached in terms of the number of loans granted.
And in the Business Finance Tip of the Week, a look at the looming Self Assessment deadline and what you can do to avoid a last minute panic!

Hi Rob, it was so interesting and entertaining listening to you at the Kevin Green Wealth Coach Workshop in Reading this weekend! I didnt realise you can find Finance proposals such fun!. Brilliant tips! Thanks.
Rob delivered a series of 3 workshops aimed at understanding how finance houses look at finance propositions with the aim for us as a team to deliver more of a bespoke offering to our customer base. The training was delivered to a mixture of staff who work with new businesses start-ups and existing established businesses across Mid & South West Wales. Rob delivered the training with an abundance of passion and has really helped my team look at financial propositions in a different light, many thanks again Rob and I look forward to work with you in the near future.
I wanted to thank you for such an insightful, energetic, and entertaining talk at the Kevin Green Wealth event on securing funding and creating a successful plan. It was brilliantly executed and a pleasure to listen to and the ideas I’ve learned are definitely going to help me in going forward.
Rob kindly agreed to attend the recent Pontypridd RFC sponsors networking evening and delivered what can only be described as an excellent talk on 5 Tactics to Boost Your Business and Your Profits. He kept the audience engaged throughout and the feedback from everyone was excellent. Rob is very knowledgeable on business and finance and on top of that is a genuine nice guy. We hope to have him back at a future event and I have no hesitation in recommending Rob’s services.
Further to your recent presentation at LEAD Wales just wanted to say it was very refreshing to see somebody talk passionately and positively about finance, very insightful!
