Loan Commitment

The amount in loans that a bank will make or may be required to make in the near future, but has not yet made. Loan commitments may be open-ended or closed-ended. Suppose a bank approves two loans in a year; one is a revolving line of credit for $50,000 and the other is a business loan for $100,000. One would say that this bank has an open-ended loan commitment of $50,000 (because the principal amount in the loan, when repaid, may be borrowed again) and a closed-ended loan commitment of $100,000 (because once its principal is repaid, it no longer must be committed to that borrower). Banks must disclose their loan commitments.
