Funding Options on BBC News
22 May 2017
Richard Leader of Funding Options appeared on the BBC this week to discuss how smaller pub companies are struggling to keep up with the top 10 as a result of a lack of finance, revealed by our recent research.
We discovered that while the top 10 pub groups saw revenues rise 3.5%, the rest of the top 50 grew by just 2% over the same period as they struggle for finance.
Conrad Ford, Founder and CEO, explains:
“A lot of pub chains outside the top ten just don’t fit the risk profile for banks these days, and alternative finance is going to play an increasing role in filling the gap created.”
