Course Materials

This CLE course will provide attorneys to lenders and borrowers with an overview and discussion of critical provisions in loan and security agreements for ARIF financing. The panel will outline best practices for drafting loan documents that protect the rights and obligations of the lender and the borrower.


Accounts receivable and inventory financing (ARIF) allows commercial borrowers to use the value of their receivables and inventory as collateral to secure financing. In today’s tight credit markets, ARIF is a viable financing alternative for many businesses.

ARIF lending generally involves a higher degree of risk than other types of commercial lending. As a result, ARIF loans require more intensive controls and supervision by the lender and have many unique features.

Due to greater emphasis on the collateral in asset-based lending, the loan must be structured so the collateral will be readily available if the lender must foreclose. Secured financing, where borrowers are stronger financially, require less rigorous collateral controls and monitoring by the lender.

Listen as our authoritative panel of commercial finance attorneys guides participants through the ARIF loan documentation process and provides best practices for drafting agreements that protect both the lender and the borrower.



  1. Accounts receivable and inventory financing structures
  2. Loan and security agreement provisions
  3. Avoiding UCC Article 9 pitfalls


The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What are the hidden dangers of ARIF for lenders and what can counsel do to minimize the risks?
  • What are the critical provisions of an asset-based loan agreement?
  • What are the critical issues to consider in the liquidation of inventory and accounts receivable collateral?
