The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered market volatility across the globe and has placed a large amount of pressure on the world’s economy. As businesses struggle with temporary but significant disruption to cash flows, many are seeking emergency funding to meet imminent financial commitments and to help alleviate the pressures caused by COVID-19.
The Government’s focus on banks as key means to help funnel cash into COVID-19-affected businesses has led to bank finance being seen as the first port of call for companies in search of immediate funding. However, bank debt may not be the most suitable option for every company to relieve its financial pressures.
In this session, our panel will consider the main sources of funding available to businesses,
as well as some of the alternatives.
