My Bottom Line: Wol Kolade, Isis Equity Partners

Help

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.
