Capital Challenges: Finance and Employee Owned Business

Baxi Partnership co-authors report on finance and employee owned businesses for Ownership at Work

Baxi Partnership (Baxendale’s parent company) and Capital for Colleagues have collaborated on a new paper for employee ownership think tank Ownership at Work.

Entitled “Capital Partners? Why it’s time for finance and employee ownership to talk”, the report highlights the opportunities and issues around finance for employee owned businesses.

It is partly based on research carried out by Baxendale in 2018 where we surveyed various businesses in the sector on this topic.

The employee owned sector is now widely acknowledged to produce businesses with greater resilience, productivity and engagement than their competitors, however the finance sector in the UK is still struggling to engage with them.  Meanwhile, employee owned businesses are finding it hard to access the finance that is available when they need it.

Read the full report, and its conclusions about the way forwards for employee owned business and the UK finance sector, co-authored by our Ewan Hall, here.
