What types of IP can be used for IP-backed loans?

We typically consider patents as the primary asset in an IP-backed loan, although we also consider trade secrets and company data as valuable assets to loan against. A software company’s code base may also be collateralized, but typically as a secondary asset.

Trademarks occasionally can be considered, but they are on a case-by-case basis.

A typical borrower may have at least a handful of patents, but often has 10-50 patent assets as collateral.
