Mike Yiannis, CEO of Legion Trade Finance, said:
“This breakfast meeting will offer commercial brokers, accountants, corporate finance advisers, IPs, lawyers and other funders, the opportunity to hear from industry experts and to network with peers, to discuss the pros and cons of alternative finance and to talk to providers and portals about their future plans.
“The issue of referring businesses on to alternative lenders was a key part of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill introduced by the Government, and it should have a significant impact on the future landscape of SME business funding under the new administration.”
