What are the advantages of a personal loan?

1. Complete flexibility of end-use. There are no restrictions on how you should spend the loan amount.  You have the freedom to use the money in any way you want – it could be for a child’s wedding celebration, home renovations, medical emergency or even a vacation. This in contrast to a home loan or auto loan where the loan amount can only be used to buy a property or a vehicle respectively.

2. Lack of collateral. This is an ‘unsecured loan’, meaning you are not required to provide any security to the lender in the form of cash, shares or any other assets.  This might make it more attractive to some customers who may not be able to raise the cash required as collateral.

3. Relatively quick. This type of loan does not require as much documentation as a home or auto loan, for instance, as it is not being taken for a specific purpose.

If you do not have any assets like a home, or shares or gold to offer as security, and are in need of money urgently, this is perhaps the most convenient option.
