Launched in 2002, the ABF Journal is the only independent trade publication serving the unique informational needs of a core group of specialty lenders in the asset-based lending and factoring industries. Each issue is themed to engage readers by providing both topical content and regular features that include news summaries, transaction data on recent ABL deals, operational articles authored by industry practitioners and feature stories on executives and companies actively involved in these specialty lines of business. The ABF Journal is published bi-monthly, with special issues in April and October.
