    Annual Report Business

    Business Banking and Leasing 

    Our Business Banking and Leasing line of business supports almost 13,000 local business owners and 6,000 leasing customers. It includes three Business Banking divisions: Local Business, Core Commercial and Real Estate Development, as well as two Leasing divisions. 


    2022 highlights included: 

    • We increased Business Banking lead syndication as a new revenue stream to support loan growth beyond our desired capital ratios and to meet our members’ needs while managing our capital, given our capacity for asset and loan growth across all lines of business. 
    • Our Leasing portfolio had material growth of 42% in 2022, due to leveraging our strong team and program via core national relationships. 

    Both the Business Banking and Leasing portfolios performed very well with low impairment losses or special account management/collections required.

    “We had some cashflow issues last year and Prospera was able to help us get through this hurdle by increasing our working line of credit. We were put in contact with the equipment leasing department to free up more cash, which we had used to purchase new machinery. What impressed me the most was their ability to complete these tasks in the timeframe that we needed and now we can focus on our business.”
