Asset-based lending in the current market place


In the current financial environment, obtaining traditional bank funding on favourable terms remains a challenge for most businesses. Consequently, an increasing number of companies are looking at alternative options, such as asset-based lending (ABL), to secure financing. The renewed appetite for this form of lending is the result of several factors, including the lower-risk profile it presents for both lenders and borrowers, compared to other financing facilities. ABL however has its own issues, such as valuation and monitoring, which need to be managed early in order to limit potential risks. This is particularly important, as ABL is expected to become the mainstream and preferred source of lending for businesses going forward.
