Many times bankers underwrite transactions that have a significant reliance on asset quality, although the transaction may not be considered to be an “asset based” transaction. Or a lender makes the assumption that a “hard asset” lender will be their secondary source of repayment without understanding the basics of asset based lending. This course develops an understanding of the risks associated with financing assets, particularly working capital assets.
- Identify asset based transactions.
- Evaluate and understand the risks of financing A/R, inventory and fixed assets.
- Understand the key role loan documentation and auditing play in asset based structures.
This course is designed for the commercial lender with at least two years of lending experience. The participant does not need to have any asset based finance experience.
