Language variant: 杠杆承诺

1. Leverage can be created through options, futures, margin and other financial instruments. For example, say you have $1,000 to invest. This amount could be invested in 10 shares of Microsoft stock, but to increase leverage, you could invest the $1,000 in five options contracts. You would then control 500 shares instead of just 10.

2. Most companies use debt to finance operations. By doing so, a company increases its leverage because it can invest in business operations without increasing its equity. For example, if a company formed with an investment of $5 million from investors, the equity in the company is $5 million - this is the money the company uses to operate. If the company uses debt financing by borrowing $20 million, the company now has $25 million to invest in business operations and more opportunity to increase value for shareholders.

Leverage helps both the investor and the firm to invest or operate. However, it comes with greater risk. If an investor uses leverage to make an investment and the investment moves against the investor, his or her loss is much greater than it would've been if the investment had not been leveraged - leverage magnifies both gains and losses. In the business world, a company can use leverage to try to generate shareholder wealth, but if it fails to do so, the interest expense and credit risk of default destroys shareholder value.
可见leverage的大致意思是以一小部分资金作本,吸引更多资金用于投资,具体手段有保留购买、期货交易或者保证金等。花旗有一种业务叫leveraged loan,香港商报就译成“杠杆承诺”,怀疑指的就是leveraging commitments。
具体到 biomath 的问题,可能得联系上下文,才能确定到底是什么投资承诺。

这里的“leveraging"或变体"leverage"是指举债(或发行的债务)的意思,根据以下的链接给出的定义,"leveraging commitments"实际上就是指某个(公益性)金融机构同意给某个小型实体/个人发放债务(leverage)的承诺。
