Merchant Cash Advance Blog - 2007 Industry Funding Estimate
I have received several emails in recent weeks asking me what I think the current size of the merchant cash advance industry is. While there has been no formal report / survey ever conducted, I have done some informal research talking to several of the major players in the space (and have ideas of what most are doing) and I believe an accurate number for 2007 would be $1 billion in merchant cash advances funded in 2007. I estimate this number is up from $500 million in 2006 and will only continue to grow over time. Any feedback on this projection / estimate is welcome.
