Asset Based Lending

Asset Based Lending

When searching for ways to finance a business, often the answer lies within your company’s balance sheet, where funds are tied up in a range of assets. Facilities such as asset based lending (ABL) enable businesses to release this cash in order to fund expansion or simply meet day-to-day cash flow requirements.

With invoice finance at its core, which advances funding against your sales ledger, commercial asset based lending solutions give businesses the ability to unlock additional funding against the value of assets, including plant and machinery, stock and property.

This makes it an ideal solution for more established businesses wishing to finance growth – for instance through management buy-outs, management buy-ins, mergers and acquisitions – as well as those who are looking at refinancing.

  3. Debtor protection can be secured to safeguard the business against bad debts

  5. Reduces the administrative burden of securing separate asset based finance facilities, due to there being only one point of contact.

I was really pleased with the service from Hilton-Baird in helping me find the right funding combination for our needs. Given the pandemic I wasn’t sure if the right funding would be available, but Hilton-Baird showed that they know the market inside out and introduced the right options. I’m confident that my facilities will support the business as we continue to establish ourselves in our sector.
