Bankers to share insights on how to access capital

The Philippine Consulate will host the seminar Access to Capital on May 24 at the Kalayaan Hall from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The event is geared towards owners of small and mid-sized businesses of all types, said Roy V. Lim, senior vice president for Commercial Banking of Citi, which is organizing the seminar. It will provide an opportunity to meet, listen to and talk with experienced bankers about how to access financing in these economic times.

“Accessing capital is one of the primary challenges facing all types of businesses today, but opportunities exist,” said Lim. “Whether you have an established business or a start-up enterprise, you are looking to buy or lease property, or your company imports or exports goods and is dealing with currencies other than the U.S. dollar, this seminar will provide valuable insight on how you can access the capital you need to achieve your business goals.”

The speakers are Eileen Thornton, Business Banking director; Donald DiMartini, Small Business Administration director; Bindi Sood, vice president for Trade Finance; and Lim.
