David Banfield asks: Open for business?

25th March 2015

David Banfield is the President of The Interface Financial Group and asks - Open for business?

David Banfield is the President of The Interface Financial Group a 43 year old company dedicated to helping small businesses grow through an innovative invoice discounting programme.

There is talk circulating that maybe the 'credit crisis' is over. We suspect that that may indeed be just 'talk.

IFG 50/50 - David BanfieldWe are a 43-year old company engaged in the financial service area. Over our 43 years of doing business, primarily with the small business sector, we have seen it all - recession, growth periods, inflation, deflation, credit crises and more.

While 'ups' have cancelled out the 'downs' and vice versa, one or two very solid constants have emerged: First, the tenacity and determinedness of entrepreneurs to make things happen in adverse conditions has been very prevalent; and second, that entrepreneurs know when the time is right for growth and they know how to exploit the conditions to leverage their growth options.

Small business is often referred to as the backbone of the national economy - it’s the engine that makes things happen, and it’s the job creator. Most of these things are true today and have proved to be accurate statements in the past.

Small business owners have become very knowledgeable in better understanding how to grow their business in recent years. This has been born out of necessity because, although the SME sector is the engine of the economy and the job creator, it is invariably the sector that is worst hit when there is any credit crisis. When the mainline funders start to tighten their lending criteria, it is invariably small business that becomes the primary target.

Entrepreneurs have, therefore, had to become more agile in navigating the secondary finance market to find opportunities to allow them to grow and reach their full potential. If your bank is not open for business, then never despair as there are many options available - it just needs a little patience to locate them.
