About business loans
How do you define asset-based lending (a secured loan)?
Asset-based borrowing is when the company owner utilises an asset they own to secure the funds for a loan. The asset may be an individual asset, such as the family home or an company property like a truck or piece of equipment.
The majority of lending institutions, even the major banks, prefer to guarantee loans against assets. If you’re struggling to pay back the loan, your asset may be taken over by the lender. In essence, it’s means of securing additional financing using the value of what you already own.
Are I require security for an company loan?
For loans that exceed $150K, the requirement for asset security is not required upfront to access the money, however we do require a personal guarantee. So long as you comply with your loan commitments (as stated in your loan contract) and you are able to meet your obligations, asset security will never be required. For loans that exceed $150K, generally, there is personal ensure and security in the form of the charge of assets.
