HSBC has announced further funding to help support businesses in the East Midlands. The £500 million fund is designed to help small businesses move through Brexit with the least financial stress on their enterprises.
Fran Howell, Regional Director for Corporate Banking in the West Midlands, said: “The launch of this year’s fund shows our commitment to support the growth aspirations of SMEs across the East Midlands.
“With an established history in manufacturing, the East Midlands region is focused on maximising its importance as a place to do business. With the combined potential of high-speed rail, energy supply and international air travel, the foundations are in place to transform the East Midlands into one of the UK’s most desirable regions in which to live and work. This fund is all about helping businesses to take advantage of these opportunities for growth and we want to reassure them that we’re here to support them achieve their goals.”
