Synergies between Commercial Finance and Equipment Finance: “How to get deals done by utilizing the resources available in the marketplace”
Tuesday, February 26, 2019
1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.


A panel discussion about how working capital lenders and factors can work together with equipment lenders to better serve the needs of their borrowers/clients. The panel will also cover how security interests on assets can be addressed when an equipment lender is brought into an existing relationship and how working capital lenders/factors can be utilized to mitigate risk for the equipment lenders when client cash flow is a concern.  Our panel will also discuss why and when working capital lenders and factors need third party service providers for evaluations and appraisals to support and confirm valuations on the various collateral types (AR, inventory, equipment, and real estate) and how important it is to have auctioneers or repossession experts to protect or liquidate these assets on the backend.
