Fund-Ex Solutions Group Builds Momentum in 2021 as Fastest Growing Non-Bank SBA Lender

Syracuse, N.Y. – Following a record-breaking year, Fund-Ex Solutions Group (FSG) has emerged as one of the nation’s fastest-growing non-bank SBA 7(a) lenders in 2021, according to data released by the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders.


In 2020, FSG funded a total $53 million, an increase of over 900% from 2019. This strong growth allowed FSG to surpass 367 other SBA 7(a) lenders to earn a spot as the fastest-growing non-bank of 2020 and one of the fastest-growing SBA lenders overall. Building on this momentum, FSG has provided more than $31.5 million to U.S. small businesses in the first quarter of 2021, securing its place as one of the most active lenders in the nation.


“This past year was very difficult for many small businesses simply wanting to survive throughout the pandemic. That’s why we are extremely proud of not only our growth, but our ability to impact people’s businesses, communities, and lives,” said Mark Schmidt, CEO of Fund-Ex Solutions Group. “The SBA 7(a) loan provides millions of small business owners with the support they need to make investments or consolidate debt, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to help our borrowers. We look forward to seeing small businesses thrive throughout 2021.”
