Interest rates and fees

Your interest rate is based on several factors including information you provide in your application, your credit history and information we already have about you if you’re an existing customer.

After you submit your application, if you’re conditionally approved, we’ll give you an indicative interest rate. This is subject to verification of the information you give us in your application. We’ll provide your final interest rate in the loan documentation, at which point you can decide to accept the loan offer.

Our interest rates explained

Understanding the different types of interest rates will help you make an informed choice.

  • fixed rate stays the same for the life of the loan, so your loan repayments will also stay the same.

    variable rate can go either up or down over the life of the loan – this means your minimum repayment may change. A variable rate loan also gives you access to a redraw facility, so if you need money unexpectedly you can redraw extra funds you’ve paid.

  • comparison rate is used to help you identify the true cost of the loan, including the interest and some fees and charges. This makes it easier to compare the overall cost of different loans.

    When you read comparison rates, take note of the loan amount and term that they are based on. These affect the comparison rate and you want to be comparing apples with apples.

  • If you have an excellent credit history, you may be offered a rate at the lower end of our range. For example, from 6.99% p.a. on variable or fixed rate loans (comparison rate 7.91% p.a.).

    An excellent credit history can mean you haven’t opened many new lending products or increased your credit limits too often.

    If you have credit accounts such as a credit card, personal loan or home loan and have made repayments on time, this will also positively affect your credit rating.

  • If your credit history isn’t long or as good, you’ll likely be offered a rate around 12.69% p.a. or higher on variable or fixed rate loans.

Understanding if a personal loan is right for you

How do I know if a personal loan is a credit product best suited to my needs?

A personal loan allows you to borrow funds for one-off personal and household purchases or debt consolidation, whereas a credit card is useful for daily expenses, monthly bills or small purchases.

You’ll be given an upfront lump sum with a personal loan in contrast to a specific limit that you can spend up to with a credit card.

Learn more about choosing between a credit card or personal loan to find the credit product best suited to your needs.

How do I find out the right amount to apply for?

Use our borrowing power calculator to work out how much you can afford to borrow, and what your repayments will be based on your income and lifestyle.

It’s important that you’re able to comfortably make repayments. When evaluating your ability to repay the amount you asked to borrow, we’ll review your creditworthiness and take steps to ensure you’re not approved for a loan amount outside your means.
