What type of loan are you looking for?

What type of $47,500 loans are on offer?

Personal loans can be split into the following categories:

What’s the difference between secured and unsecured loans?

  • Secured personal loans use an asset you own as collateral. If you are unable to repay the loan, the lender can then repossess and sell the asset to recoup some or all of the losses from the unpaid loan. If you own a car, property, term deposit or some other valuable asset, you will likely be offered a lower interest rate in exchange for offering it as collateral. You could potentially borrow a larger sum of money if you offer security and the meet the lending criteria.
  • Unsecured personal loans are loans where you do not put up an asset as collateral. Unsecured loans are higher risk for the lenders, because if you default on the loan, there’s a reduced possibly to recoup the loan. These types of loans come with a higher interest rate, because it reflects the greater risk

What’s the deal with fixed and variable interest rates?

Sometimes, nothing. Though other of the times, it impacts the maximum term of loan, the maximum amount you can borrow, the interest rate and whether the loan includes a redraw facility or allows you to repay early without incurring a penalty fee.

  • Fixed interest rates will not change over the life of the loan, which makes it easier to budget. By agreeing to a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan, there is no risk that you will miss payments because the interest rate increases. On the flipside, if there is an interest rate cut in the future, you will miss out on any possible savings. Some lenders may not include a redraw facility on fixed rate loans or will include an early repayment fee.
  • Variable interest rates may rise and fall throughout the life of your loan. This could potentially mean that you will save money in the future if interest rates fall, but if interest rates rise in the future could become difficult to continue to meet the monthly premiums. Variable interest rate personal loans tend to be more flexible for payment terms than fixed rate loans, which gives you more options to manage your finances and tailor your payments to work for you.

Do you have an personal loans repayment calculator?

Yes. Use the filter to adjust your loan amount and term to calculate your approximate monthly repayments. When you apply the filter, you will see a breakdown of your approximate monthly repayments as well as the total amount of interest and fees paid.

How to apply for an personal loan?

Personal loan eligibility criteria

Before you apply for a personal loan, be sure to understand and meet the lender’s lending criteria. Below is high-level overview of eligibility criteria that may impact your chances of being approved for a personal loan:

Minimum requirements for a personal loan
  • Minimum age: Range is between 18-21 years of age
  • Minimum income: Range is between $15,000 and $50,000
