Finance FAQs

What is a secured loan facility?
A lender's primary concern is that they will be repaid. If a borrower becomes insolvent, the lender may have to share the borrower's available assets with other creditors and only receive part of what it is owed as a result. Lenders often take security to protect themselves against this risk and increase the likelihood that they will be repaid. Where security is provided, the lender gets an interest in the security provider's asset(s) giving it comfort that it will be able to recover amounts from the borrower in the event of the borrower's insolvency.

What is Asset Finance?
Asset finance is a method of providing finance for the purchase of particular tangible movable assets. The structure of the financing used depends on the nature of the asset being purchased. A key feature of asset finance is that the asset itself which is being financed will be the primary security given to the lender. The revenue provided from the use of the asset will repay the debt and service interest payments.

There are two principal types of asset finance structure:

  • secured lending, where the lender loans money to the purchaser to buy the asset and the lender in turn takes security over that asset; and
  • leasing, which is extremely common and can offer greater flexibility
