NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – In a review of trends in small business finance, the new Biz2Credit recovery ranking for 2021 found that companies in the Financial Services and Insurance industry recovered the fastest from the COVID-19 pandemic compared to other industries. These companies experienced the strongest recovery from COVID-19 lockdowns, as financial services and insurance companies had high demand for expansion capital, but low level of distress.
New Biz2Credit Recovery Ranking identified the most recoverable industries based on the number of loans approved in PPP Round 1 and PPP Round 2 (Figure 1 only), as well as the aggregate demand for growth capital of small businesses in different economic sectors. The proprietary research looked at industries that experienced a higher degree of recovery from the pandemic and were in a stronger financial position in 2021 compared to 2020.
This new ranking matrix measures the resilience of companies in different sectors based on their ability to bounce back from the economic shock of the pandemic. The Biz2Credit Recovery Ranking was created to assess the extent of the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic across all industries.
â¢ A high percentage means that companies in a particular industry are recovering well from the pandemic.
â¢ A low percentage means that companies in a particular sector are recovering poorly from the pandemic
Ranking is an exclusive measure of the demand for government funding and the need for an industry relief.

These industries include construction; Transport and warehousing; Educational services; Arts, entertainment and recreation; and Public administration.
âIn this report, our data scientists found that small businesses in certain industries have experienced a greater level of recovery from the impacts of the pandemic. Financial and real estate companies have been exceptionally successful in recovering from the pandemic, âsaid Rohit Arora, CEO of Biz2Credit and one of the leading experts in small business finance. âRetail trade has also rebounded financially. Their challenges are now linked to the supply chain, rather than consumer demand. “
