The Small Business Finance Institute (SBFI) offers commercial lender education across a broad range of financial, underwriting, leadership and business topics. Our ‘Study Hall’ pages offer additional resource information for participants to augment lectures and course work with class notes, articles, case studies and other various media to broaden lesson presentations.

While most information offered here is open to all readers, course notes are available only to those who enrolled in the class where passwords were distributed.

The Small Business Finance Institute was founded on the premise of providing sound, germane and principled information and resources to support and promote the commercial lending sector and its participants. We advocate for distribution of credit capital in a prudent, responsible manner that utilizes time-tested, regulatory compliant practices, which inures to the benefit of all stakeholders.

You are invited to engage with the resources and programs that are part of this enterprise, whether reading our publications, participating in training programs or joining the discussion with your comments. The lending industry will benefit from better informed, trained and participating business lenders.
