Marlin Business Services in Mount Laurel, N.J., has partnered with property and casualty insurer Hartford Financial Services Group to expand services for its core clientèle.

The $714 million-asset holding company for Marlin Business Bank will refer its small-business customers to Hartford's commercial insurance products, according to a Tuesday news release.

Hartford's products for small businesses include policies for workers' compensation, business owners and business auto insurance.

Marlin Business Bank in July introduced an online platform where small-business owners can apply for loans of between $5,000 and $100,000.

The partnership with Hartford is intended to expand on the bank's online lending platform, to create a "one stop shop" for small business owners, Marlin said in the release.
