The ability of companies and organisations to pay and recover debts affects and reflects the financial health of UK plc.

Research by the Credit Management Research Centre (CMRC), led by Professor Nick Wilson has led to improvements in credit management practice, and has directly influenced UK government policy and regulation.

Professor Wilson’s research has led to the development of tools and guidance to alleviate short and long-term financing problems for large and small businesses and organisations. It has also improved understanding of alternative forms of corporate finance for new ventures, growth and corporate restructuring.

The research has also helped to answer why some businesses grow and others fail in relation to financing, financial management and governance. The work has also led to changes being made to debt management systems and procedures in the public and private sector.
