New banks not the answer, says BCC

Creating new banks will not help more businesses gain access to funding, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has said.

The BCC’s comments on the issue came after Ed Miliband had stated the need for more competition in the banking sector with the creation of two new banks.

The BCC’s director of policy, Adam Marshall, claimed that the industry as a whole need to change, “Switching between banks can be an administrative nightmare for many companies”.

And although he acknowledged creating new banks may create extra competition and choice for businesses, Mr Marshall didn’t feel it would help solve the funding problem faced by a large number of new and growing firms looking for appropriate finance solutions.
