Controlling Your Bank

It’s time to take back control of your bank. By control we’re talking about knowing and ensuring you have the best option for you and your business when it comes to banking; establishment fees, ongoing fees, security offered, terms and conditions, flexibility and support. If you’re a sole trader or are self-employed in particular, being aware of a significant cash flow benefit that would ease the heavy lifting is crucial.

Led by financial services expert Peter Cooper, this session will guide you on how to take back control over your bank and provide you with the tools to assess and take action. You will learn:

  • How to identify whether you or your bank is currently in control.
  • How to know whether your offer is in line with market for your business/industry.
  • How to know whether you should look to agree on better terms/pricing with your current bank, or move to a new bank.
