Underwriting is a procedure in which an individual or institution take sin a financial risk for a fee. “What do you mean by risk?” – The risk is the loan, insurance, or investments in subject. The term “underwriter” came from the practice if having each risk-taker write their name under the total amount of risk they were willing to take on for a set fee or premium.
Underwriting requires good due diligence to make a determination of the degree of risk each applicant or entity poses before assuming that risk. This checkpoint in the process is what sets the fair borrowing rates for loans in Colorado and establish proper premiums to sufficiently cover the true cost of insuring policyholders. If the risk is decided to high the an underwriter can refuse coverage.
The risk is the underlying factor that lives in all underwriting. For a loan, the risk is if the borrower can repay the debt in a timely fashion. The ideal person is someone who can repay and will not default. In assessing insurance clients, the risk falls into weather there’s a likelihood that too many policy holders will file a claim at once. For securities, the risk is that the underwritten investments will bear fruit.
