My Bottom Line: Wol Kolade, Isis Equity Partners

Wol Kolade is managing director of the venture capital firm Isis Equity Partners. He says we need a return to old fashioned banking, where banks issued credit to help companies grow.

Banks need to offer small and medium-sized companies more credit to help fund advance customer orders, so they can grow and play a role in wider economic recovery. Wol says it would be 'a crime' if companies have to turn down business because they cannot fund the manufacturing of orders placed by customers.

Wol appeared on The Bottom Line which is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service. Subscribe to the podcast or watch it on the BBC News Channel.
