Business Banking Series Fact 7: Different banks like different sectors, and offer different terms

This is a really important fact about today's banking, and with a further focus on commercial mortgages; not all banks take the same view of each business sector!  As a result, you get different rates and different terms.

It therefore begs the question: how do you know for sure your mortgage is with the best bank for your sector?  If you've been loyal to one bank for many years, you may be completely unaware that the marketplace offers a better solution all round.

For example:

1. One leading bank offers 80% LTV on owner occupier mortgages, and another only 70% LTV.

2. One bank offers 15 year fixed terms for commercial property investors, another will only fix for 5 years.

3. One bank is the clear market leader in manufacturing, offering 1% better in general than most of the others.

So how do you know for sure?  The easiest way to find out is to use the best comparison offering in today's marketplace; a non-fee commercial finance specialist.
