What is Balance Sheet Lending?
Also referred to as portfolio lending, balance sheet lending involves a monetary loan in which the original lender retains the debt throughout the life cycle of the loan.
It's not uncommon for lenders to sell debt at a reduced price. If the borrower fails to pay, the lender may sell the debt in an effort to recoup some of their lost revenue. Balance sheet lending ensures this does not happen as the original lender retains the debt without selling it off to a third party.
Balance Sheet Lending is Ideal For:
- Increased Transparency
- Reduced Borrower Risk
- Balance Sheet Loans are not Resold
- Direct Communication with Lender

How does Balance Sheet Lending Work?
Balance sheet lending is a loan that a lender will retain on their books instead of selling it off to another financial institution or to individual investors at a discount. Some borrowers may prefer balance sheet loans because they would rather deal with the original lender in the event that a problem develops during the course of the life of the loan.
Disadvantages of Balance Sheet Lending
But there are also some potential disadvantages associated with balance sheet lending. Normally, balance sheet lenders have less capital than traditional lenders. Balance sheet lenders typically do not loan the full funds for a purchase. Rather, they loan 60-70% on average. This is because balance sheet lenders are considered more conventional, and as such they must carefully assess the amount of capital loaned to business owners and entrepreneurs. If you run a large business and need equally large amounts of capital, perhaps a single balance sheet loan won't suffice.

Benefits of Balance Sheet Lending
There are a few benefits associated with balance sheet loans, one of which is the ability to communicate directly with the original lender in the event a problem arises. With other traditional loans and financing, the original lender may sell the debt to a third party. This creates confusion for the borrower since he or she may not know who to contact. By keeping the debt in the hands of the original lender, it provides greater transparency and ease of communication between the respective parties.
Another benefit of balance sheet lending is the minimal risk it creates for the borrower. Because the item isn't an asset or a liability, the borrower typically isn't required to place an item on the balance sheet; thus, minimizing the risk.
