Risk warnings and important information
None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.
All statements concerning the tax treatment of products and their benefits are based on our understanding of current tax law and HM Revenue and Customs’ practice. Levels and bases of tax relief are subject to change.

What Are Secured Business Loans?

What Are Secured Business Loans?

Secured business loans require collateral. In this respect, they are different from unsecured business loans, which don’t require collateral. For a first-time borrower, it might seem the latter is preferable, but let’s not jump to conclusions!

Lenders offering secured business loans secure their interest by asking you for a guarantee. This can be equipment or inventory, or something else  you legally possess, depending on the type of the business you run. If, by any chance, you won’t be able to repay the loan in due time, the lender will have the right to take possession of the guarantee, thus recovering their money.


Secured loans are not as risky for borrowers as unsecured ones, especially when it comes to business loans, which are typically much higher. A secure business loan always protects the lender. And this makes the bank willing to lend you a lot of money, usually as much as you ask.

Moreover, the interest rate tends to be low, the repayment terms favourable, and the loan application process fast. All these are great advantages for a business that requires a considerable loan that exceeds £500,000. Secured loans always come with better interest rates than unsecured ones, and often this advantage alone is worth the collateral. That said, certain businesses, especially small ones, might not be willing to agree because of the risks involved. Unsecured loans are then a good alternative.

Choosing the Right Loan for Your Business – Compare the Financial Markets

Both secured and unsecured loans can help a business grow. For some companies, one type of loan might be preferable to the other, but it all depends on the condition of the company, and its financial strength. If you wish to borrow a lot of money quickly, and to achieve a preferable interest rate, secured business loans are the right choice for you.
