  1. Underwriting

    Underwriting refers to the process that a large financial service provider uses to assess the eligibility of a customer to receive their products. The name derives from the Lloyd's of London insurance market. Financial bankers, who would accept some of the risk on a given venture in exchange for a premium, would literally write their names under the risk information that was written on a Lloyd's slip created for this purpose.
