Traditional Commercial Lending

We’re here to help:

Fifth Third Bank offers a variety of traditional bank loans to help achieve your financial objectives. Whether using a loan to make emergency payments, finance facility expansions, manage equipment costs, or acquire new assets, with traditional commercial lending your funds are provided directly from our bank. Although alternative lending provided by a non-bank lender can seem convenient and may have fewer requirements than a traditional bank loan, alternative loans can be more expensive due to higher interest rates, ultimately making traditional bank products more beneficial to your business.

We Understand You Need More than Just a Lender

That’s why we listen first—to learn the details of your business and understand the financing you need.

Our traditional bank loan solutions can help you achieve:

  • Plant expansion
  • Shareholder buyout funding
  • Acquisition opportunities
  • Equipment purchases
  • Facilities expansion
  • Management buyouts


Some traditional loan services we offer include:

  • Traditional secured and unsecured credit facilities for working capital purposes
  • Recapitalizations
  • Stock collateral and ESOP loans
  • Seasonal or extended terms

In addition to consistent lending practices and a willingness to grow with you, we offer the trusted advisory experience of a long-standing management team.
