This is an inquiry into how easy it is in the UK to access finance, particularly in the aftermath of the Financial Crisis. The committee is seeking evidence on the following points:

  • How has the landscape for access to finance evolved since the end of the financial crisis?
  • What have been the most successful Government policies to assist growing companies access private finance and where is there room for improvement?
  • Does the UK have globally competitive markets / suppliers for financing (and debt financing) at 1) seed 2) venture and 3) growth stages? What steps could Government take to strengthen these systems?
  • Are alternative methods of raising finance (such as crowd-funding and peer-to-peer) sufficiently well-regulated and monitored for companies to be confident in utilising them?
  • What are the main improvements or interventions, in terms of finance, that the Government should make to achieve the objective of increasing the number of successful and high-growth businesses in the private sector?

The inquiry is still ongoing, so is low/no priority for us to look at for now, but some evidence documents are available at the Parliament website
