Education for Brokers and Bankers

We're here to develop brokers and bankers - build their confidence and capability to create capacity in servicing the SME market.

Brokers across the industry have been ‘sold’ the dream of diversification to increase revenue and de-risk their business, and invariably the solutions proposed are product based. They are offered products to sell their clients, or ‘spot and refer’ and in turn place their client relationships at risk.

The foundations and fundamentals are largely ignored or at best are sporadically presented in one-off workshops.  There is scarce emphasis on reading and interpreting financial statements, how to review, build and sensitise a business cash flow, and identify the strengths and weaknesses that exist in the business. Then how to take that knowledge and match the appropriate funding solutions to help business owners’ reach their goals.
