An IMB Personal Loan can help you get behind the wheel of a new car without breaking the bank.
IMB, which began operations in 1880, is amongst the largest and oldest building societies in NSW. It offers a diverse range of financial services and products which include transaction and savings accounts, term deposits, insurance solutions, advice surrounding financial planning, as well as business banking.
IMB also has two personal loan products that can help you finance the purchase of a vehicle — a Secured and Unsecured Personal Loan. These personal loans come with competitive interest rates, flexible payment options, and a quick and straightforward application process. Choose the loan that best suits your needs, as both options offer different rates, loan amounts and requirements, and make the car purchase of your choice.

Features of the IMB Personal Loan
- Loan term. For both the secured and unsecured loans you can choose loan terms of between 1 and 5 years.
- Additional repayments. You can make additional repayments towards your unsecured or secured personal loan without incurring penalties, and this enables you to pay the loan off sooner than scheduled.
- Competitive rates. The Unsecured Personal Loan comes with a rate of 9.9% p.a. and the Secured Personal Loan comes with a rate of 6.89% p.a.
- Fees. You can make an early payout without worrying about early termination fee. You don’t have to pay ongoing account-keeping fees, but you do have to pay an application fee.
- Loan repayment insurance. If due to unforeseen circumstances you cannot make timely repayments, loan repayment insurance covers you. This is an optional extra with both personal loan offerings.
- Security. If you wish to apply for the secured personal loan you have to provide security in the form of a vehicle that isn't over five years old.
