What is Asset-Based Lending or an Asset-Based Loan?

Asset-based lending (ABL) is a business loan secured by collateral, also known as assets. The loan is secured by accounts receivable, inventory, and equipment. ABL finance is typically structured as a revolving line of credit, which allows a company to borrow against assets on a continuing basis to cover investments or expenses as required.

Also known as ABL Financing or Finance, asset-rich companies can utilize asset lending to maximize borrowing capacity. ABL financing can be used for strategic growth for companies looking to expand into new markets. To qualify for asset based financing, it is generally required that the company is both stable and have assets that are able to be financed.
