What are collateral loans?

Collateral loans use an asset to secure the loan amount. In other words, the lender holds something of value from the borrower until the loan is repaid.

Common examples of collateral

Collateral can be any asset that the lender could use to recoup the loan amount if the borrower is unable to repay the debt.

Common examples include property, business equipment, vehicles, stocks and other luxury assets such as jewellery and art.

Advantages of collateral loans over unsecured loans

Most bank loans take the form of unsecured loans that use the borrower’s credit rating and income to gauge whether they’ll be able to repay the loan.

These loans involve lengthy applications with supporting documents and the need for life, disability and retrenchment insurance.

With collateral loans, there’s no need for guesswork about the borrower’s ability to repay funds. As long as the asset covers the loan amount, income and credit rating are irrelevant.

Because of this, collateral loans don’t require credit checks or proof of employment.
