Can Invoice Finance Save The Day Roundtable
Defining the role of receivables finance in the UK's recovery is an important topic. Therefore, I was delighted to be asked to chair the recent round table discussion titled "Can Invoice Finance Save The Day? Getting Business Back On Track In 2021".
Watch the whole discussion here: Roundtable.
Our friends at Optimum Finance put the event together, and their CEO Anthony Persse was kind enough to invite me to moderate the discussions that took place on the 4th May 2021.
We were all able to participate remotely, using video conferencing technology that worked without a glitch. A testament to Optimum who have led the way with their innovative invoice finance quotation app that delivers a decision and pricing within 60 seconds.

The Role Of Invoice Finance In The UK's Recovery
We had a lively 90 minutes of discussions regarding the role that invoice finance can play, supporting businesses as the UK economy recovers from the recession caused by Covid-19.
There were some great ideas about how receivables finance can support businesses in both periods of rapid growth, and where there may need to be restructuring of emergency borrowing that was taken out via the Government loan schemes. The details of those will be shared in due course and there were a number of actions to be followed up by those that were involved.
