One of the more frustrating aspects of starting a business, or even switching banks, is the stressful experience of opening a bank account. The Competition and Markets Authority, as part of its 2016 Banking Review, tasked banks with making it simpler. To start the Bulletin, we look at the outcome of that request with the release from UK Finance of new guidance on required documentation.
We share news from Triodos Bank, the Bristol-based sustainable and ethical bank, that it has launched its own crowdfunding platform. Projects which have an environmental and renewable focus will feature as available for support.
To close the Bulletin, we look at the announcement from Nat West that ESME Loans, an alternative lender, has joined the bank’s Capital Connections panel. The panel is a list of approved lenders who may be able to help businesses in need of finance where the bank can’t support.
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!
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 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.
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.
