Asset-based lending (ABL) is financing where a business uses its assets as collateral to secure a loan or line of credit. The value of the assets determines the amount of funding a company can receive. Businesses use financing that needs short-term working capital or funds to support growth. The assets used in asset-based lending include inventory, accounts receivable, real estate, equipment, and others.

Companies are rapidly leveraging ABL solutions as they provide several benefits, including improved cash flow, flexible financing, working capital support, lower interest rates, better risk management, and other growth opportunities. In addition, other corporate assets such as patents, trademarks, and other intangible assets are occasionally used. Moreover, lenders are switching from in-house systems and moving to cloud-based technology. This enables cost savings, operational efficiency, and compliant and secure environments, thus driving the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Asset-Based Lending Market

The pandemic detrimentally impacted most of the country’s operations, curtailing profitability and turnover. With onerous trading restrictions and regulatory impositions by the government, many businesses worldwide witnessed weakened balance sheets and cash pressures. To maintain their lifeline, enterprises relied on loans to sustain in the market. Also, to cope with financial hardship, businesses evolved from cash-flow-based to asset-based lines of credit. This increased demand for asset-based lending solutions, thus driving the market. ABL proved to be a flexible and accessible option for businesses looking for additional working capital. Moreover, introducing new products by key players is fuelling and boosting market growth.

  • For instance, in November 2020, Northpoint Commercial Finance (financial services company) expanded its product offerings by launching asset-based lending solutions for U.S.-based mid-sized companies.

Thus, ABL aided businesses in navigating through the challenges of the pandemic and creating value in the future.
