Asset financing is typically structured as a line of credit secured by a specific asset or across a combination of existing assets. Usually, this includes accounts receivables, finished goods inventory, real estate, and/or equipment. With asset financing, a company uses its assets as collateral to obtain capital. The financing institution does not own the companies’ assets, but the assets can be seized if the business does not make its required payments on the loan. Besides working capital, asset financing can be used for many other purposes.
Asset based loans are perfect for:
- Company acquisitions and business mergers
- Management buy outs
- Financing expansion
- Turnaround finance
- Refinancing existing business loans
