Learn How Asset Based Lending Can Grow Your Business

from North Avenue Capital


What to Know About Asset-Based Lending

Asset-based loans are a great option for a business that is seeking ways to access capital, especially if they may not qualify for a traditional loan. If you have fixed assets, you can qualify for an asset-based loan that can give your business the resources it needs to grow. North Avenue Capital is one of the premier asset-based lenders that can work with you to find a solution that fits your needs.

Who Are Asset-Based Loans Best Suitable For?

Small and medium-sized businesses, especially those in rural markets or those with less than stellar credit, are the best candidates for asset-based loans since they may not have full access to the traditional lending market.

What Are Some Advantages of Asset-Based Loans?

Because the loan is backed by tangible assets, a business may be more likely to be approved for a loan since there is less risk for the lender. In addition, lenders such as North Avenue Capital can help devise flexible solutions that meet your particular needs.

What Are Hard Assets That Can Be Used?

Assets that can be used to secure an asset-based loan include real estate, machinery, equipment, inventory, and other fixed assets. The loan is backed (collateralized) by these assets, so if there is a default, the lender will take possession.
