New Financing Models for a Changing World

Since the credit crisis in 2008, banks haven been focused on improving their image and balance sheets. The standards for providing loans have been raised to such an extent that Small and Medium Sized companies (SMEs) can hardly fund new investments. Start-ups are having difficulties in raising funds. This trend will continue and therefore SMEs are increasingly sourcing their funds in alternative ways. Other financial institutions too are introducing new and innovative models. In short, the financial world is changing, and new models of financing are becoming more popular. The Covid-19 crisis has made this transition even more necessary.
