“The growth in broker introduced business to SMEs is very encouraging news for the
industry and the UK economy. The increase in business from brokers also
highlights the value that businesses put on the advice and expertise offered by
experienced brokers, who draw upon their wealth of knowledge to access the best
suitable terms for their clients. This proves how
integral the services of brokers are to the growth and recovery of the UK as a
whole. The recent upturn in activity from SMEs also offers very encouraging
signs showing that they are investing in new equipment, which in turn will
inject new life and growth in to the economy.”
