Asset Based Lending

Flexible financing for strategic and growth needs

You need an asset-based lending program that takes all your organization’s needs and goals into account. KeyBank experts draw on years of experience in your industry to create a financing package uniquely suited to your business and situation.

A corporation’s tangible assets, and in some cases its intangible assets, can do more than perform its primary business function; an asset can also work on behalf of the balance to generate liquidity. The flexibility of an asset-based financing structure can be particularly relevant to those companies that are unable to maximize funding from its assets in a traditional lending structure. This specialty product is particularly relevant to high growth companies, seasonal businesses, turnaround situations and commodity-type businesses. This applies to a wide range of company sizes in industries where working capital assets dominate the balance sheet (manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers and business services, for example).
