Experian®, the leading global information services company, and Moody’s Analytics have teamed up to develop the new Experian/Moody’s Analytics Main Street Report. Unlike previous quarterly analyses, the new report brings deeper insight into the overall financial well-being of the small-business landscape, as well as providing commentary around what certain trends mean for credit grantors and the small-business community as a whole. Key factors of the Main Street Report include a combination of business credit data (credit balances, delinquency rates, utilization rates, etc.) and macroeconomic information (employment rates, income, retail sales, investments, etc.).
Experian Business Information Services recently concluded a data study to explore how minority-owned small businesses are faring in today’s economy. The analysis highlights credit characteristics, industry preferences and demographic attributes of business owners.
As a group, minority-owned businesses receive far fewer commercial loans and have significantly fewer trade accounts than the general small-business population. At the same time, minority-owned businesses have average business credit scores that should qualify them as viable prospective borrowers. This whitepaper highlights key findings from a recent analysis of minority-owned business data. They include a review of the study, the major insights revealed, and suggestions for how a change in common business practices can deliver “win-win” outcomes for minority businesses and the lenders that extend them credit.
