Are Smes More Confortable With Small Domestic Lenders? (I -The Literature)
AbstractSmall and medium enterprises (SMEs) are recognized having an important role in economic development, but this recognition doesnâ€(tm)t resolve the essential problems of the SME sector. We found that one of these are the problems of insufficient or inadequate funding, the lack of availability of financial institutions or private equity investors to meet the SMEs financing requirements. The need for financing of SMEs is predominantly covered by bank loans, but it is difficult to say if this demand finds an appropriate offer, in amount and structure. Thus, it is important to understand if the role of lending techniques and organizational structures of the banks, types and origin of the owners (state, private, domestic or foreign) or the size and the market power (large, small, local, or niche banks) individualizes the banks offer and if the banks know the best way to mitigate the demand and supply constraint. Even though the traditional view explains the strategic predisposition of large banks to finance their clients(by default large clients, corporations) through transactional lending and, and local/domestic banks use the relationship lending- suitable to small customers (SMEs), however, the more recent opinions show that the large international banks use a combination of methods and techniques to gain favorable position on SMEs segments.
