In this Interview Mark Parsons of Shawbrook takes us through the many benefits of ABL and explains why it frequently out performs traditional, less flexible forms of finance that a business may arrange with their bank. Mark and his team are very proud of the enviable reputation they’ve built as a helpful lender to the Mid Market who make every effort to foster real working relationships between themselves and their clients.
