Admission: Free, open to the public

Why Local Banking?

In the UK, the inability to access affordable finance is hindering economic recovery. When funding cannot be obtained, businesses fail or never start, and projects are put on hold. This also sets back efforts to decarbonise the economy. Large banks often make lending decisions removed from the location of the applicant and with less local knowledge. In other countries, such as in Germany, the majority of banking relationships are still locally based. This is said to be a key cause of the strength of the German SME sector. This public session will explore the case for reviving local banking in the UK and the benefits of localising money flows. It will explore the risks and benefits to local government of supporting local banks and the audience will hear of plans for a community bank in Hampshire.
