Bank Lending Imperative

‘Luke Johnson, the founder of Risk Capital Partners, and chairman of StartUp Britain, writes in the FT that banks need to end their reliance on property and lend against other assets to help industry.

He says that not only can property prices fall, but buildings can go from being income producers to cost burdens. Mr Johnson adds that although interest rates have propped up real estate values, rates will rise one day and in turn that will put more pressure on property prices.’
