Small Business Finance (TBA01)

Small businesses are the veins and arteries of the economy. Millions of imaginative, hardworking and self-motivated individuals respond creatively to the demands of the economy in the respective countries we come from.

The financial services industry’s ability to serve the small business world is crucial in ensuring the continued success for any economy. But serving the community requires considerable and specific skills, as well as an instinct for this business. It also requires an understanding of how technology and innovation can be used to succeed in this fierce competition for the business of the small customer.

Where banks are failing small businesses today, new forms of financing support are coming in to take the place of traditional players. More important than selling credit, banks have to learn how to sell a sense of community and mutual support.

This training is designed to be carried out digitally for the benefit of your promising employees in this business.
