Why FSB Funding Platform exists
A recent British Business Bank report* highlighted a number of factors that inhibit SMEs pursuing business funding, which is why we set up FSB Funding Platform in January 2018

Business decision makers hold imperfect or inaccurate information on the types, costs, benefits, and the likelihood of securing external finance

Most UK SMEs are not aware of financial products beyond standard term bank loans, overdrafts and credit cards
Where SMEs are aware of a product, often they may not practically know a trusted provider of that product to contact
A minority of SMES cite the hassle of borrowing as the reason for not planning to seek finance, despite having a need to do so
