Fastcast: Small Business Outlook and Bank Preferences

In this video Bredin CEO Stu Richards presents a fast-paced and informative webcast with new research on:

The SMB business outlook:

  • How optimistic small businesses are about their business prospects
  • Which challenges keep small business owners up at night
  • How concerned businesses are about inflation, interest rates, supply chain issues and other issues
  • Whether small business owners feel a recession is likely (or if we’re already in one)

SMB bank preferences, including:

  • What kind of bank small businesses use
  • How happy they are with their bank
  • How their bank satisfaction has changed in the past 12 months – and why
  • How likely small businesses are to switch banks
  • Which financial products small businesses have – and which they plan to add in the next 12 months
  • Where small businesses plan to apply for a loan next year
  • Which additional services small businesses get – and want – from their bank
  • How small businesses rate the business management advice banks provide, and how important it is to them
