The Greedy Bankers – I’d rather go bust than pay those rates! Commercial Finance, Commercial Finance Broker Blog, Landlord News, Latest Articles, Property News

Greedy BankersIn my previous commercial finance blog I spoke about the cost of finance post credit crunch. This time my question is; would you rather go bust than deal with greedy bankers?

The Untapped Abundance of Commercial Lending Facilities Commercial Finance, Commercial Finance Broker Blog, Landlord News, Latest Articles, Property News

I asked the question in my last article“could it be that “self limiting beliefs” amongst lenders, brokers and perhaps more importantly, would be borrowers, are prolonging this recession?”

On Friday 23rd November 2012 I was honoured to be invited to attend the 20 year anniversary of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers “NACFB” as a VIP guest.

This article is to be the first in a series of blogs talking about the commercial finance industry, in particular my personal perceptions of commercial funding post credit crunch. I can assure you, the discussions I was a party to at the NACFB event were very different to anything you have read in the newspapers.  For example, did you know that there are over 30 active property development finance lenders in the UK and yet the majority of them are struggling to hit their lending targets? That’s not what the Press tell us is it? Could it be that “self limiting beliefs” amongst lenders, brokers and perhaps more importantly, would be borrowers, are prolonging this recession?
