How does the unsecured personal loan work?

This loan does not require an asset as collateral. You can use the loan funds for home renovations, holidays and other purposes. You can also use it to consolidate debt, such as credit card debt. The interest rate is variable, meaning can fluctuate based on the market rate. This makes it harder to predict your monthly interest repayments, but you stand to pay less if the rate goes down.

What features does the loan offer?

  • Unsecured loan. To apply for this loan, you won’t have to put up an asset as security.

  • Borrow from $5,000 upwards. You can borrow between $5,000 and $20,000.
  • Variety of uses. You can use the loan funds for home renovations, wedding expenses, your honeymoon or holiday. You can also use it to consolidate debt.
  • Unlimited extra repayments. You can make as many extra repayments as you want.
  • Redraw facility. You can redraw the extra repayments that you have made.
  • Loan repayment holiday. If you’re ahead of your repayment schedule, you can request for a loan repayment holiday.

What are the pros and cons of the unsecured personal loan?

Pros

  • Loan is not tied up to an asset. This makes the loan less risky. In case you default, your asset won’t be repossessed as the loan is not secured to it.
  • Flexible repayments. You can make as many extra repayments as you want and redraw the extra money if you need to. This loan also offers a repayment holiday if you’re ahead on your repayments.

Cons

  • Higher interest rate. Compared to the secured loan, the unsecured loan comes with a higher interest rate. Higher interest means higher monthly repayments and overall cost of the loan.
  • Lower borrowing amounts. The maximum borrowing amount is $20,000.
