May 25th, 2016 – Axis Capital achieved the second largest year-over-year growth in Monitor’s national ranking of Top 25 Vendor Channels. Axis realized a 67.9% vendor channel origination increase. In comparison, the top 25 group’s average increase was only 6.9%. This substantial growth now places Axis at No. 20 overall in the top vendor channel ranking.

“We have been extremely focused on expanding our vendor-based relationships and are thrilled with the overall performance and continued growth,” said Michael Karman, Axis CCO. “More importantly we appreciate the confidence that our vendor partners continue to place in Axis’ comprehensive suite of equipment financing solutions.”

In April, Axis announced that the company’s cumulative new business origination volume in 2015 increased by 56% from $132.2 million to $213 million, resulting in Axis’ advancement to seventh place in Monitor‘s national ranking of top independents.
