Financial Services for Small Businesses in the U.S., 3rd Edition
After lagging behind their bigger counterparts, small businesses are seeing their fortunes revive in the aftermath of the great recession. And as small businesses recover, they are in the sights again of financial institutions large and small, which are expanding the array of products and services for the “mom and pop” entrepreneurs.
In its new report, Financial Services for Small Businesses in the U.S., 3rd Edition, Packaged Facts estimates the value of purchases made with small business credit cards alone at $505 billion, and we expect 11.5% growth in 2015. So far, small business loans have not caught up, leaving ample room for innovation. But it’s also about finding the right bank: our analysis reveals significant differences in large banks’ ratios of small business and microloans to loans outstanding. And it’s also about understanding small business owners and managers (including the self-employed), whose banking, securities, and business credit card usage lend insight into their bankability.
