Secured Loans Vs Unsecured Advantage Loans

By: Emily Harris

A typical unsecured loan ranges from credit card debt to bank overdrafts and personal loans. The advantage being that no assets are fixed to the loan and so the risk of repossession does not exist.
Since there aren't any assets securing the loan, the risk involved for the lender is increased. In response to this the interest rate charged for the loan will also be higher.
Compared to secured loans, unsecured loan amounts tend to be smaller.

A recent survey run by Advantage Loans Finance displayed some surprising results regarding secured finance. Given the UK public's current rate of borrowing, the secured loans industry is unlikely to go into recession. Research displays that such loan advances will be as high as ?50 billion by 2008. There were 15,000 recorded bankruptcies in a single quarter in 2005, which is almost a 40% increase on the same period in 2004.

With such a possibility of financial terror, can you justify a secured loan and have you fully explored the alternatives to raising money or reducing debt?

Despite the results researched by Advantage Loans, there is a gradual increase in consumers' awareness of the benefits of unsecured finance.
However, excessive loan amounts that are unsecured will adversely impact an individual's credit score and cause the individual to get higher interest rates on secured loans. You cannot deduct the interest from any unsecured loans.
