1 When you take out an unsecured loan, you do not need to offer an asset as security or collateral for it. To get a secured loan, you must offer an asset, such as property, as security. If you are taking out a business loan, we may ask for a Personal Letter of Guarantee (PLG) as a form of security. When you sign a PLG, you promise to take responsibility for repaying the loan if the business cannot do so.
