Well, we’ve started 2021 – how does it feel? I guess a lot like 2020 right now!
I for one though, have a feeling of optimism about this year, granted, it’s going to start slow, but I think the second half of the year will be a good one, for individuals and businesses alike.
We’ve got a brand new website! A new look and feel and much more content to be added. A much more engaging and interactive site which will link nicely with our social media sites – I hope this will help clients old and new to find out more of what we do and what’s happening in the wider industry.
Monty is my Hungarian Vizsla and he’s my thinking companion and sounding board. I spend a lot of my time when walking him across the fields here in sunny Hertfordshire thinking about life, business and what’s happening in the finance world.
A lot of those thoughts then end up here in the website.
This week we’ve been thinking about the opportunities for a new start for so many businesses up and down the country when we get out of lockdown. Many of the lenders on our panel seem are thinking the same, new products are being launched, LTVs and rates looking more favourable and lenders securing more and more capital for funding. This is all great news for the businesses out there who will be needing support during 2021.
Cashflow will be a big area of focus in the coming months, many businesses that have been closed will need to re-stock and businesses that are paid on terms will be waiting for payment long after spending to start trading again. Therefore, I see our working capital and invoice finance solutions being important offerings in the coming months.
I guess I’d better get back to the office then! ‘Til next time…
(Monty was cold, so I lent him my hat!)
