Where next for cashflow and finance?

With the coronavirus pandemic having heavily impacted the UK business landscape, and disrupting operations worldwide, many companies are still fighting to survive this crisis, whilst thinking about 'what next?'.

As we enter a reopening phase, a host of competing challenges present themselves as the economy unlocks, including managing debt repayments, insurance coverage, rent arrears, tax deferrals and adapting workforces and operating models to deal with new levels of demand.

Join Rain Newton-Smith (Chief Economist, CBI), Amanda Murphy (Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC) and Ian Watts (National Practice Leader, Marsh) for an expert discussion including:

  • Insights on the overall market picture and current lending environment for businesses
  • Finance options available to businesses as the economy opens up
  • Ongoing risks for businesses, including on repayments and insurance continuity, and how to prepare


  • Rain Newton-Smith, Chief Economist, CBI
  • Amanda Murphy, Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC
  • Ian Watts, National Practice Leader, Marsh
  • James Harding, Co-founder and Editor, Tortoise Media (chair)

Replacing the Daily Coronavirus Webinars, our new bi-weekly broadcast, CBI @10am will help support you through the next phase, giving you expert insight and intelligence to continue adapting, and providing the guidance you need to restart and boost your business, and build resilience for the new normal.

Webinar recordings are made available on the same day of broadcast between 16:00 and 17:00. If you have signed up for the webinar, you will be sent a follow-up email with a link to the recording. You can also access all previous recordings on the CBI website.
