Has your bank reduced (or stopped) new business lending?

I have created a Linked In poll asking if your bank has reduced lending to new business customers, and if so by how much.  It’s only one question, which you can answer quickly by clicking this link.

Then you can compare your answers to that of other bankers.

If you are ‘dead in the water’ on new business lending, what are you doing about your pipeline?
