Optimistic SME’s

Critical were delighted to support Bibby Financial Services in the latest wave of their SME tracker.

Launched in 2015, the SME Confidence Tracker is a regular study of SME owners and decision makers across the manufacturing, construction, wholesale, transport and services sectors. The study is based on a sample of 1,000 UK SMEs, and tracks views of business owners on a range of subjects including current performance, legislation, Government policy and investment plans.

Results this wave suggest that despite increasing optimism among SMEs and some signs that the economy is improving, SMEs are still cautious as high interest rates and inflation continue to pose challenges across many sectors.
