Bankers Trust is an SBA Preferred Lender
Along with our commitment to entrepreneurs and businesses in our community, we offer flexible business lending, such as SBA guaranteed loans. Bankers Trust is an active participant in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) lending program and has earned preferred lender status for SBA loans. SBA loan programs enables Bankers Trust to offer government guaranteed loans for small businesses with loans involving a higher element of risk, where there may be a collateral shortfall or repayment is based on projected income. As a preferred lender, Bankers Trust is among the SBA’s best lenders to enjoy a full delegation of lending authority. This means that the SBA has given us the authority to make the final credit decision, often resulting in a faster loan process for your small business. This means that, no matter the SBA loan you are interested in, you can be certain that we have the expertise and skill to help.
