The funding landscape has continued to evolve with a wide range of debt related products, outside of traditional bank loans and overdrafts, available to support growing businesses.

From start-ups to scale-ups, the availability of debt finance is vital to businesses across the region.

In our latest webinar with Clearwater International, a panel of experts will explore current themes in the debt markets and discuss debt finance options available to businesses to help them make informed choices to accelerate their growth.

It will also be an opportunity to hear their views on sector trends in the region and funders’ appetite as businesses navigate through the current economic uncertainties and how the debt market will be impacted by the economic developments of 2022.

The online event will take place on 15 November at 10am. You can register for free here.
