Collateralization

Collateralization

What is Collateralization?

When a borrower pledges an asset in order to get a loan, this is known as collateralization. When a borrower lacks a sufficient lending history or cash flows to provide assurance that it can repay a loan, a lender may seek collateral. In a tight credit market with few funding options, a lender may be able to impose a collateralization requirement on borrowers.
