Will borrowing funding for my business expose me to greater personal risk?

If you go to your bank, yes, your bank will likely require you to secure personal assets (i.e your house) against the loan, exposing your personal assets to risk as the banks want greater security. If you need to borrow funding for business asset purchases, consider using a second-tier lender that secures the funding against the specific asset, or ask your own bank if securing the funding against a specific asset is an option. You’ll pay more in terms of interest, but the risk to you is a risk around that specific asset, not around your house.
