This book is an essential guide to what any business must know before talking to their bank about finance in these changing times.In this book you will discover: what kind of businesses banks actually like to lend to; how much finance you should ask for; how a bank decides on your credit rating; why banks don’t just lend the money because you offer security; what a bank is really interested in knowing about your business; what ROE is and why it matters; how many business forecasts you should show your bank; how many banking relationships your business should have; what sensitivity analysis is and why you need to know; and a whole lot more!David Sparks worked in business banking for over twenty years in the UK, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
