Fuelling Local Economies – What more can banks do to support small businesses in Edinburgh

@ Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce 40 George Street Edinburgh MIDLOTHIAN None EH2 2LE

30th January, 2019 08:30-10:20 Event
In January we invite you to take part in a private roundtable event we are hosting in partnership with the British Chambers of Commerce and TSB, to explore how banks can better serve small businesses in the region.
 
The last decade has been a challenging time for the banking industry, but TSB is fully committed to working with businesses across the UK to re-build relationships. Small businesses are the engines of economic growth and prosperity, fuelling local economies right across Britain. But despite this, small businesses often feel underserved, undervalued and overcharged by their bank. In Edinburgh small businesses felt they received a poorer service from their bank than a larger company.
 
This roundtable event aims to discuss the unique set of challenges facing small businesses in the UK, and what more banks can do to help small businesses thrive.
 
Attendees will gain advance sight of new research, commissioned by TSB and conducted by Oxford Economics, which identifies some of the shortfalls of the business banking market and the impact this is having on small businesses productivity and growth in our region.
 
This event provides an excellent opportunity to put forward your views about what banks can do to help businesses in Edinburgh thrive. I do hope you can make it.
