Collateral is a property or other asset that a borrower offers as a way of securityto a lender of a loan. If the borrower stops making the promised loan payments the lender can seize the collateral to recover its losses.

  • Since collateral offers some security to the lender, should the borrower fail to pay back the loan, the security is used as a way of repaying of the losses.
  • Loans that are secured by collateral typically have lower interest rates than unsecured loans.
  • The lender can look to offer loans on collateral to a wider range of students as well as weaker sponsor credit profiles.

All financial institutions provide collateral loans. When it comes to being approved for a loan it’s all about the risk.Every lender has their own way of assessing risk based on student profile credit history of sponsor, employment potential etc. Your potential lender can finance you even if you have a weak profile provided collateral is used as a security against the loan. Hence it is always advisable to trying this option first.

Collateral can be in the form of all types of asset classes –
Real estate (House, Shop, etc.), Shares, Gold, Fixed Deposits, Insurance policy(net realizable value), Bonds, etc. The collateral has to have a clear title and should be mortgage-able. All asset classes have to be evaluated by Govt. approved values and each of them has a different risk parameter.

The Mortgage-able property owner has to preferably be a blood relative. In case the same is not a blood relative we would require an undertaking from the primary holder and next of kin, accepting the terms and conditions of the mortgage. They would have to be co-borrowers/guarantors.

An unsecured personal loan is simplya fixed-rate loan that you can receive without collateral/security to guarantee it. The same can be used for education purpose

Typically all potential students can avail Non collateral Loan, however with the riskier profile of the loan it is provided to the students who have secured admission into top schools globally and have a very strong Co-signor/Guarantor.

We generally restrict the Loan amount to not more than 50% of the course fees. We require proof of payment of the balance funds.

Yes, the College/University is informed about the loan and we generally require a confirmation from the University, of you joining the college, example, I20, Admit Letter, etc.

Our partnering institutions like Private Investors, Non Banking Finance Corporation, Hedge Funds and University Endowment Funds generally provide unsecured loans. Each of these Institutions hasits individual risk and screening methods.

A partially secured loan is the one in which the underlying security is less than the loan approved value. The partially secured loan can be looked at with lesser risk than completely unsecured loan.

The interest rate for an unsecured loan is generally higher than a secured loan. A loan in INR would be around 12 -15% and in USD would be around 7 -10%.

We require you to fill up the basic details. Our experienced guidance counselor would get back to you with the response from our financing partners.
