The JP Morgan Institute released a report detailing the behavior of over 600,000 small businesses in their bank network. Their conclusion is that “cash is king” and that “cash reserves are a critical tool for meeting liquidity needs”. JP Morgan reported that businesses held average daily bank balances equal to 27 days’ worth of expenses.
