Company owners have more than one option to get a loan a nd of the most conventional routes is to secure a loan based on the cash balance of the company.

Banks appear to prefer these types of loans because they are dependent on the company’s real sales production.

Another alternative is to apply for an asset-based loan. Usually, these loans are based on other considerations other than cash flow and are not preferred by conventional banks.


The main distinction between asset-based loans and conventional bank loan is:

The conventional bank loan would first look at the cash balance and then the collateral.

The asset-based loan first looks for collateral. As conventional lenders underwrite cash flow as their primary source of redemption, they generally need less collateral control and supervision, but more financial arrangements.
