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.

Benefits of asset based lending solutions

  1. ABL is more flexible than loans or overdrafts as funding is secured against the value of your assets
  2. Funding can be used for a range of different purposes, whether to improve cash flow, fund expansion or even fund mergers, acquisitions, management buy-outs and management buy-ins
  3. Debtor protection can be secured to safeguard the business against bad debts
  4. Facilities grow in line with the business
  5. Reduces the administrative burden of securing separate asset based finance facilities, due to there being only one point of contact.
