The negative, alpha male, win-at-all-costs image of financial services is being shattered, according to one of the industry’s leading female CEOs.

Katrin Herrling, CEO and Co-founder of Funding Xchange, said: “As a woman who’s managed to succeed in the finance industry I can tell you that the ‘macho-man’, no morals culture is far from true.”

After working in the industry for over a decade, Katrin decided to launch Funding Xchange to support those businesses that find it difficult to access finance.

She added: “Since the credit crunch it’s proved challenging for businesses to access finance, especially from the established banks. At Funding Xchange we’re able to recommend the finance options available that match the requirements of the business, so they are able to make an informed decision.

“We want to put the business owner in the driving seat and make it as easy as possible for their business to grow.”
