Short for underlying. Often bonds sold with insurance also are given a rating as if there were no insurance. This is called the underlying rating.

E.g. The bond is rated AAA MBIA with a AA under.

Translation: The bond is rated AAA because of MBIA insurance and would have been rated AA without the insurance.
