Bankers Healthcare Group Expands Beyond Healthcare
Bankers Healthcare Group (BHG), which provides financing solutions to healthcare professionals, announced at the end of last week that it is expanding into small business lending with a new license to offer SBA loans through its wholly-owned subsidiary, FundEx Solutions Group. Fundex is now one of only 14 non-bank lenders in the country that offers an SBA 7(a) Loan Guarantee Program, according to the company.
“We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve earned licensure as a non-bank SBA lender,” said Mark Schmidt, CEO of FundEx. “Not only is this a great opportunity for the BHG brand to grow, but it’s a terrific new option for customers who may require loan amounts or terms that are not available through BHG in order to accomplish their business goals.”
BHG, through FundEx, will now be able to provide SBA-backed loans to licensed professions in a variety of sectors including accounting, architecture, law, engineering, financial services and insurance. Loans will go up to $5 million, with terms of up to 25 years. And the loans may be used for a number of different purposes, including real estate acquisition, renovation or expansion, purchase of equipment, business acquisition or commercial debt consolidation.
“There’s market demand for larger loans and we’re excited to offer another innovative lending solution to help licensed professionals grow their own businesses,” said Al Crawford, the original founder, Chairman and CEO of BHC. “We built FundEx Solutions Group based on our tenured success in medical financing to be flexible and fast with excellent customer service.”
Founded in 2001, BHG, based in Syracuse, New York, has provided more than $3.5 billion in funding to to over 110,000 healthcare professionals.Last modified: November 20, 2018
