“Equipment Broker School’s diversification model is uniquely suited to serving financial brokers very real needs at this challenging time,” Co-Founder Josh Feinberg said. “We are encouraged by our increasing sign up momentum yet remain highly focused on our plan to rapidly reach more and more brokers to help them get through this financially.

“The fact that Equipment Broker School is seeing an increase in sign-ups makes sense,” said Will Murphy, co-founder of Equipment Broker School. “Equipment Broker School had told brokers to prepare for the worst and add a new lending product like Equipment Finance, while Cash Advance Brokers didn’t take the advice, we are seeing them change their mind.”
Prior to COVID-19 striking, only about 5% of Cash Advance Brokers offer Equipment Finance & Leasing. Murphy said. “We expect that will increase to at least 15-20% by the end of this”
