Specialised lenders such as Scottish Pacific say their customer base is increasing due to the stricter lending standards of the major banks. Scottish Pacific CEO Peter Langham notes that many of the firm’s small business customers would traditionally have secured funding against property from a major bank. Prospa’s co-founder Beau Bertoli agrees that small businesses are finding it harder to secure financing from big banks, noting that they are scrutinising loan applications more carefully.
