How Do You Differ from Other Lenders?
Traditional lenders have restrictions (geographical area, industry concentrations, lending limits) that we do not. They also have other areas of focus: deposit growth, fee income target goals and so on. We do not. We only focus on small business lending, specifically 7(a) loans. This is all Fountainhead SBF does. Because of this, we can respond faster than any bank. We also have a deep knowledge of the SBA program, which means we will lead you through the process quickly.
SBA 7(a) loans are oftentimes superior to conventional commercial loans as to the length of loans, competitive interest rates, balloon payments conventional loans require, assumption of loans, and so on.
