Davie, FL—BHG Financial (BHG) is the leader in unsecured business and personal loans, as well as the creator of one of the country’s largest community bank loan and product networks—the BHG Bank Network. For 22 years, the company has been committed to supporting the community banking industry and providing small and medium-sized businesses with access to the capital they need to grow and succeed.
Today, the company announces a significant milestone in its relationship with community banks. In the first quarter of 2023, BHG Financial recorded $920 million in total sales to its Bank Network— the highest quarterly total in its history.
BHG has established itself as a reliable loan source for community banks across the United States since 2001. It is building on its record-breaking 2022 success of banks on its network purchasing a record $2.6 billion in loans. Overall, more than 1,550 banks have purchased BHG loans, earning over $1 billion in interest income combined since the company’s inception.
“I am so proud of what the bank network has accomplished,” says Al Crawford, Co-founder, Chairman, and CEO. “Considering everything that has been at stake in this environment, it’s gratifying that our large network of banks trust and lean into BHG solutions. Our relationships remain strong and resilient.”
This new milestone significantly raises the bar in many ways. It validates the strategies BHG developed and started implementing in Q4 2022 based on macroeconomic analyses for 2023.
BHG’s analytics and credit underwriting teams adjusted credit models to account for changes in consumer behavior, enabling the company to offer its Bank Network members strong-performing loans with the highest level of credit quality in its history. The new sales record shows how much interest and demand the banks have for BHG Financial products and services.
“This achievement spotlights BHG as a trusted source banks rely on to supplement their in-house originations,” says Meghan Crawford-Hamlin, President of Institutional Relationships.
As the BHG Bank Network has evolved, so have the offerings to its members. BHG offerings include multiple fees and interest income opportunities, digital lending, risk management services, regulatory guidance, and more—with additional offerings on the horizon. BHG introduces these new products and services at its quarterly seminars, bringing together hundreds of banks for a chance to learn more about its latest innovations.
