Financing your IP with Lombard
Our IPF asset finance solution is an easy way of unlocking funds for technology businesses, without sacrificing control over your intellectual property.
When you apply for IPF with Lombard, our specialists work with you to calculate the collateral value of your IP by reviewing cash flows, third-party contracts, development costs and future plans. We then license the use of your software back to you for an agreed term, usually ranging from three to five years.
When your agreed term is finishing, we can sell the IP back to you or a third party, or negotiate revaluing the IP to re-finance.
