Very few banks provide small businesses with attractive, affordable and attainable lending options. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by Ernst and Young, small business lending has declined 20% since the financial crisis while enterprise level lending is up 4% over the same period. These numbers simply reinforce the suffocating reality most of our clients endure right now – a banking culture that creates issues like cash flow problems, expansion constraints, missed investment opportunities, and the inability to maintain or update vehicles and equipment. When loans are unsecured, as with most professional service companies, the climb to attain capital can be even more painful.
