Factors to consider about the Greater Bank Secured Personal Loan

This is a secured loan, so you must provide collateral to secure the loan amount. Depending on your financial situation, Greater Bank will approve up to 120% of the value of your assets. No monthly fees apply and you’ll repay the loan at a fixed rate of 7.49% p.a.

If you’re hesitant about using your assets as a guarantee, Greater Bank also offers an unsecured loan option. However, you’ll pay a higher interest rate, as security isn’t required.

If you’d like to apply for this loan, below are some of the features you might want to consider:

  • Quick turnaround. This loan can be approved within 24 hours of your application, provided that all the necessary documents are supplied.
  • Loan term. You can repay this loan over a maximum of 7 year(s).
  • Security. This loan type requires that you use assets to secure the loan amount, which can include vehicles, expensive equipment or property.
  • Interest. The interest rate is fixed at 7.49% p.a., which means that repayments remain unchanged throughout the loan term.

  • Early settlement. You can settle the whole outstanding loan amount early without risking a penalty fee.
  • Redraw. A redraw facility is available at no extra cost when effected online or in person at a Greater Bank branch.
