For small and medium enterprises, it can prove challenging to obtain the capital required when first starting and establishing the different phases in their business. This is especially important when seeking competitive or lower rates of interests for the company. In this scenario a secured loan may be the most viable option for you, using property or business assets as collateral to offset the risk of borrowing by offering them as security to the lender. This is usually issued as a second charge for the borrower, and rates usually start at 2% over base rate.

Difference between secured and unsecured loans
Borrowing any sum of money for your company by using collateral is the simplest form of protection. Unlike unsecured loans, the lender can repossess your collateral if you default on payments and it is not repaid. However, with indemnification set in place, there is an improved chance of acceptance for a secured finance, benefiting asset rich companies who are seeking immediate bankroll and are looking to release equity quickly.
Benefits of a secured finance
As mentioned above, on the basis that collateral can be used as an additional form of protection, you have a higher chance of acceptance from lenders who will agree to provide you with secured finance, as they can repossess your assets if they are not refunded in the contracted duration. Another benefit of secured loans is that they obtain lower interest rates which are obscenely competitive within the financing sector, unlike secured loans the collateral represents lower risk for the lender. The terms we offer can range from anything between 6 months up to 30 years, which is a benefit to those looking for a short or long-term funding option.
