Having spent the last the last 25 years of my career within the invoice finance sector – working with some of the UK’s leading companies – I’ve seen significant changes to the industry in that time. But, business funding is more important than ever and business owners in 2014 are looking for more efficient ways to grow.
Alternative finance has come a very long way in recent years. Services such as invoice discounting and factoring have brought small and medium-sized businesses more opportunities when it comes to company growth, flexibility and stability. And although more traditional forms of funding are still very much prevalent in today’s market, businesses like Bibby Financial Services are leading the way in providing support for the UK’s ambitious SMEs.
This year marked my 10th year at Bibby Financial Services and it’s really exciting to see the company still growing; expanding our product portfolio and continuing to help SMEs and businesses across the UK and beyond.
