“The more banks learn about SBICs the more attractive they find them, both for high profit and regulatory relief under the CRA and the Volker Rule” says Brett Palmer, CEO for the Small Business Investor Alliance, a trade association of private equity funds and investors that promotes investment and growth in small and medium-sized businesses in the United States. “There are very few investments that are exclusive in domestic small business, create jobs and are highly profitable.”
