There are more types of finance available to SMEs than most business owners realise. An NACFB broker may find a solution that serves the individual business needs with a more suitable and cost-effective solution.
Modern business owners have become much savvier; often outsourcing their financing to a specialist broker – which in turn allows them more time to manage the day-to-day running of the business.
Business owners are the experts of their business and sector, but obtaining finance can be quite a complicated matter. It can be confusing to understand the difference between all the different options, interest rates and repayment choices on the market.
Dealing with a broker means dealing with an individual. A broker is someone who will take the time to understand a client, their business and their sector.
When an business approaches a bank for finance directly, the bank will look to sell that business a loan. If that business instructs a broker to help them obtain a business loan, then the broker is working for that business and client, not the bank.
