Smooze financiers now

Be ready when banks step up lending

Tight credit markets of the past few years have made it difficult for business owners to obtain loans to expand their businesses.
Getting a loan is still as hard as ever, even though most financial institutions have plenty of capital to lend.
With the interest rate charged banks by the Federal Reserve Bank at almost zero, it’s surprising so little capital is moving around.  
Loans, as a percentage of deposits, are very low.
Credit will loosen eventually because banks can’t survive long-term without making loans.
Stung by losses when loans defaulted, banks are understandably more conservative; but they need interest revenue from loans to grow.
Recent financial activity suggests money might be starting to flow again. That’s why now is a good time to build a relationship with one or more financial institutions through dialogue.
Before dialogue starts, business owners should fully understand their financial position.
Most business owners have a clear grasp of the sources and amount of cash generated by their business.  
While it’s important to be aware of all revenue sources, it’s far more important to understand every line item in the expense chart.
The past few years have forced many companies to face reduced revenues, yet expenses have continued to go up.
