Brexit and its impact (positive or negative) and the associated uncertainty continues to dominate the headlines. However, owners of SMEs continue to face the day-to-day challenges and opportunities presented by running a business. A recent survey conducted by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum, highlighted that entrepreneurs regard access to cash flow as the most significant barrier to growth going forwards. More than 25% cited it as the main barrier to growth – compared to only 5% citing concerns about Brexit.

Whilst the supply side of the financial sector is evolving rapidly to fill this shortfall in need from the vitally important SME sector – the lender landscape is more complex than it has ever been – with niche players competing alongside high street brands. This makes navigating the market for small business very difficult.

At Aben Financial we specialise in helping SMEs access the right finance and have access to over 270 lenders – ranging from high street banks, peer-to-peer lenders, challenger banks, private funds and more. We’ll expertly and honestly guide you through the process from initial enquiry to funding. Contact us at or 01202 800 100.
