For over 30 years, Asset Based Lending Consultants (“ABLC”) has been providing lenders across the country and around the globe with a strong knowledge base and specialized consulting services designed to improve their credit decision and loan management processes.

Led by Donald Clarke, renowned author of the book Asset Based Lending Disciplines, Mr. Clarke has conducted countless seminars and provided hands-on assistance to banks with review of asset based lending practices, underwriting, field examinations and financial statement analysis. ABLC has been called upon by the leading lenders in the industry to provide some of the highest caliber loan monitoring and management services available in the market.

Once considered a last-resort financing option, asset based lending has become a popular choice for companies that don’t have the credit ratings, track record, or patience to pursue more traditional capital sources.1

Today, more and more business owners are realizing that their needs do not fit the traditional bank line of credit format; they are turning to asset based lending because it fits their needs.2

And with today’s lending laws requiring financial institutions to have fully documented, well managed and regulatory-compliant processes as they issue asset based loans, there has never been a greater, more urgent need for banks – especially smaller local institutions that may not have ability to scale and hire the necessary personnel to manage these processes – to seek the advice of third party experts to guide their lending efforts.

Here’s where ABLC plays a key role, and where you fit in. With experience built across multiple markets around the world, plus our constant focus on refining our practice, teaching informative educational industry seminars, publishing articles – and having become one of the most trusted experts in the asset based lending sector – we now turn our attention toward further expansion. As an ABLC franchise owner, you will be able to benefit from a streamlined, professional business model that will allow you to grow your own independent B2B business, while leveraging the support and knowledge of our experienced team.

We encourage you to read on and discover all the great things about owning your own Asset Based Lending Consultants business – with all the inherent benefits you can bring to your clients, as well as to your own personal and professional future. We appreciate your interest in Asset Based Lending Consultants and look forward to further exploring
this opportunity with you!
