Factors to consider about the Greater Bank Unsecured Personal Loan

This is an unsecured loan, which means that Greater Bank doesn’t require collateral to secure it. No monthly fees apply, but you will be charged an establishment fee of $250. A redraw facility is available online for no charge, but a fee will be levied for redraws made by written request. The interest rate is fixed for the term of loan at 11.95% p.a.

Greater Bank also offers a secured personal loan option where you can benefit from a lower interest rate if you offer up collateral to be used as security.

Features of the Greater Bank Unsecured Personal Loan

If you’re interested in applying for this loan, here are some of its features to consider:

  • Quick approval. If your application is complete, you can be approved for your loan within 24 hours.
  • No security required. This is an unsecured loan, so you won’t be required to provide collateral as a guarantee.  
  • Fixed interest rate. Interest is fixed at 11.95% p.a., so your repayments won’t change with fluctuations in the interest rate.
  • Flexible repayments. Choose to make repayments on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. Additional repayments are allowed for no extra fee.
  • Early repayment. If you’d like to repay the whole of the loan amount before the end of the loan period, you can do so without risking a penalty fee.
  • Loan term. This loan can be repaid over a period of 1 to 5 year(s).
  • Fees. Monthly fees are waived, but an establishment fee of $250 applies. If you default on repayments by an amount equal to less than two repayments, a fee of $6 will be charged. For a bigger default, you will be charged $20.

How to apply for the Greater Bank Unsecured Personal Loan

Applications can be submitted online. Keep in mind you’ll need to meet the following criteria to apply:

  • You must be at least 18 years old.
  • You must be an Australian permanent resident.
  • Your credit history must be in reasonable shape.

You will be asked to submit the following documents to support your application:

  • Bank statements from the last three months
  • A signed letter from your employer as proof of your position and income
  • Driver’s licence, passport or photo card as identification
