What is Bridging Finance?
Bridging Finance can be a useful tool for some businesses. It involves borrowing finance for a period of time, until the money is ready to be repaid. It is commonly used for property developers, who are looking to “bridge” the time gap between the need for finance and then the sale of a property.
So what does bridging finance entail? It usually provided over a short period of time, at a higher monthly interest rate than a traditional longer-term loan. And lenders usually require a clear exit strategy – usually the borrower being able to earmark the sale of a property, a re-finance or another event which will enable them to pay back the loan.
So is bridging finance right for your business?
Well that depends on the business and what you are looking to do. For any organisation, commercial finance is a bespoke process. The type of finance which is right for you and your business might be very different for another business. Which is why at ASC Finance for Business, we arrange an in depth discussion with each business looking for finance, to help understand which finance is right for them, and how best to proceed in applying for finance.
