B2B/SME Business Banking
‘2+2=5 - Where financial enterprise meets client entrepreneuriality’
Our client is a new name in the challenger banking field. Well led, well capitalised and well thought out with a growth focused, property-driven SME business proposition. Enterprising, profitable, controlled growth. Does this excite?
Leveraging historic legacy with cutting edge modernity, it is uniquely positioned to capitalise on a gap in the market for a full service offering to the entrepreneur. With a robust board and rigorous commercial, but compliant strategy, it has a ‘classic hub and spoke’ HQ and regional capital structure…perceiving Bristol and the South-West/South-Wales as a key progressive market for its services to bank both owner and company requirements. They seek a leader to drive this opportunity – energy, enterprise, ethics and efficiency are key, to make this lean offering succeed, to literally build the bank, the team and the portfolio. Does this resonate?
Whilst capability is more important than qualification, you are probably C.I.B. qualified. More critically, you are an experienced and driven business banker of standing and credibility. You have stakeholder currency and can take the market with you. You know the Bristol scene, its Intermediaries and Advisers, The Chamber/Business West/The LEP, CBI etc., both its ‘power’ brokers and influencers, its establishment and its rising stars. You have current credibility and think/speak ‘owner-proprietorial SME!’ Is this you?
But your numbers don’t add-up! You may have hit a ‘glass ceiling’, been frustrated by a bureaucratic credit committee or by facing a down-sizing threat. Whichever, your personal enterprise is being held back. Currently your metrics equal ‘less than the sum of their parts’, through no fault of your own. We are building something where the opposite occurs i.e. 2+2=5. Does that interest you?
