The Industry Source for Small Business Information

Membership in the SBFE is open to any financial organization that originates small business financial obligations, owns the paper related to small business financial obligations or services the receivables for small business financial obligations.  Members are required to report all of their small business lending portfolios to the SBFE Data Warehouse™ on a monthly basis and pay annual Member dues.

A small business is defined by the SBFE as a business entity with revenues of less than $10 million and loan exposure with the financial institution of less than $2.5 million.  Please note, individual Exchange Members may define "small business" differently and SBFE allows its Members to report small business loan portfolios based upon the Member's definition of a small business transaction.
