This SMB Lending Insights report is a snapshot of current financial trends and metrics that impact small and medium-sized business (SMB) lending and financial institutions. SMBs and financial institutions face tremendous uncertainty in the current environment, which is characterized by elevated interest rates, high inflation, and growing personal delinquency rates. The report outlines SMB loan origination trends, delinquencies on SMB loans (90+ Days Past Due, or DPD), and changes in the average loan sizes for various industries. Financial institutions can consider this information to benchmark trends at their own institution and to evaluate plans.

The report is based on data from Abrigo Small Business Lending Intelligence, a lending decision and monitoring engine powered by Charm Solutions. Abrigo Small Business Lending Intelligence uses observations from Abrigo’s client base of over 2,400 U.S. institutions to provide a comprehensive representation of the banking and financial sector.
