Radar Global is gearing up to launch the Quarter 2 Greenhouse250 Survey on May 9th and is expecting a positive response from the 5,000 faithful Finance Managers and other business leaders across 11 Emerging Economies.
The latest round of research will focus on business sentiment and bank reputations, giving respondents an excellent opportunity to voice their opinions on the economy and the banks that support that economy.
SME’s are hugely dependent upon the banking and finance sector to support and sustain growth in their businesses, through good times and bad. “Access to finance” is consistently observed as one of the top three barriers to growth in emerging markets and as confidence in the economy improves, SME’s often seek credit and financing to purchase new plant and machinery, increase inventory, invest in innovation and technology, rent more space, hire new employees or simply to increase short term cash flow.
Most countries are dependent on SME’s, which make up about 90% of all enterprises in most economies, to succeed and to grow - so when the financing pipeline clogs up, it’s bad news for everyone.
Watch this space for Q1 and Q2 survey results in the coming weeks.
