Asset based lending

Asset based lending (ABL) enables larger businesses to raise higher levels of funding than invoice finance alone, ideal for facilitating strategic plans or simply releasing additional working capital.

About asset based lending

Asset based lending blends invoice finance with funds released against other asset classes on your balance sheet, such as stock, property or plant and machinery.

ABL is an excellent option for businesses looking to finance a management buy-out/buy-in, a merger or an acquisition. Alternatively the extra funds can be used as a contingency, providing additional working capital as and when required.

Asset based lending explained

Funding structure

Our approach is fully bespoke and based on the specific requirements of the transaction and the structure of each business. We fund against both inventory and property on a flexible basis and up to 90% prepayment on accounts receivable.

We are also able to offer an additional funding stream for plant and machinery through our asset finance division, Close Brothers Asset Finance

For businesses with proof of strong cash generation in the past and with positive cash forecast for the future, a cash flow loan may also be available to top-up funding where required. 

Is ABL suitable for my business?

Our asset based lending solution is primarily aimed at larger companies that have a turnover in excess of €14m/£10m and which are looking to raise between €2.8m/£2m and €57m/£50m to expand, restructure or refinance.
