SME’s globally account for over 60% of employment and also potential number of businesses. Yet most banks tend to treat them as step children. Somehow, they can’t figure out how to cost-effectively build a sales organization to acquire business. If they manage that, then they can’t figure out how to build a liability strategy along with an asset strategy. If they manage this, then they can’t figure out how to manage the credit risk. And so, it’s a situation of “can’t live with them, and can’t live without them”.
