Underwriting

The process by which financial institutions assess the risk and creditworthiness associated with a potential customer or loan applicant. Considerations made within the underwriting process may include employment history, financial statements, salary, and credit reports.
Unsecured Loan

A loan supported only by the borrower's creditworthiness rather than collateral. For example, a borrower with a high credit rating may be issued a loan without requiring a piece of real estate to be used as collateral. Can be directly contrasted with secured loans.
