Asset based financing is a funding option that enables businesses to access either a loan or a revolving line of credit that is secured by assets (i.e. collateral), such as inventory, equipment, receivables and so on.
There are several advantages of asset based financing that make it an intelligent funding solution for many businesses. These include:
As with all business funding products, there are some limitations to asset based financing that are important to keep in mind as well. All of these pertain to loans where receivables are used as collateral (instead of equipment, inventory, real estate, etc.):
The fact is, most banks would be delighted to offer asset based funding, because it is indeed a smart and safe option for certain businesses that have sufficient collateral, and do not qualify for conventional bank loans (e.g. impaired or bad credit scores, less than two years of history, not cash flow positive, risky industries or marketplaces, etc.).
However, banks must follow strict federal regulations that, among other constraints, do not allow for loans where borrowers have relatively high debt-to-worth ratios. Since this typically characterizes most businesses that would be interested in asset based financing, banks are on the outside looking in — hence, their anti-asset based financing stance.
At National Business Capital, we do not face these federal funding constraints, and as such we proudly offer asset based financing to businesses across the country.
