Who We Are

Charles Wendel, the President of FIC Advisors, Inc., has extensive experience as a banker and a consultant. He is a well-known public commentator on industry issues and a personal advisor to industry leaders.


Banks and Alternative Finance

Alternative Finance(AF) companies are growing quickly as they focus primarily on the 90% of small businesses that banks either cannot or will not lend to. Banks can increase their revenues and establish relationships with more customers by working effectively with AFs. Some AFs also offer operational and risk platforms that can reduce the cost of small business lending. Banks should consider whether and how to team with AFs. FIC has just established a group on LinkedIn to provide insights on AFs and the issues that AFS and banks need it address to work together.
