CUMBRIA BUSINESS FINANCE NETWORK INVESTOR SURVEY
7%
 
 
This survey is intended for local businesses, charities and private individuals who feel that they might consider supporting small local businesses which are facing difficulties in obtaining finance through conventional banking channels. The current expectation is that any arrangements would be designed to be commercially sustainable and yield an expected return slightly above that of a typical bank deposit, but the whole intention of this survey is to clarify the preferences of potential investors, and we will aim to adapt our thinking to the feedback received. Nothing you say in this form will be taken as any kind of binding commitment, just as an indication of your current thinking. Please be assured that all information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.
