Traditional Banks versus Alternative Lenders
SMEs form the backbone of the EU economy: it covers 99% of the total EU business. But SMEs struggle to obtain advice and financing, while financing is vital for its business operations.
Traditional banks are withdrawing, and non-bank alternative financing is growing. The number of financings to SMEs of less than € 1 mln by banks is going down. Traditional banks struggle to meet SME demands: the margins are thin, which leads to pressure standardization and automation. And this abandons the customer intimacy.
At the same time, the number of of financings provided by non-banks are increasing by over 40%. Alternative lenders and digital platforms add massive complexity fopr SMEs by missing overview and guidance.
Both financiers, alternative lenders and platforms miss distribution with direct access to SMEs through trusted advisory.
