Who is it good for

The Greater Bank Secured Personal Loan could be a great choice for borrowers who are willing to use an asset as security in exchange for a lower rate. This loan may also be a good choice for borrowers looking to pay off their loan as fast as possible without being penalised for doing so.

Any catches

While this personal loan is on the lighter side when it comes to fees, there is a $275 application fee you’ll need to factor into your budget. It’s also worth mentioning that this loan is secured, so you will need to put up some sort of security, like your car, to be used as collateral against the loan.

Latest review of Greater Bank Secured Personal Loan

  • Overall 10/10
    Fantastic service & fantastic loan.

    Fantastic service! All I had to do was show up with the paperwork, and the loans officer worked it all out for me and got me a better rate than I was initially told. There was an itsy-bitsy application fee and there is no early pay-out penalty which is important as I intend to pay the loan off much quicker than the term, and I also have a redraw facility as well so if something unexpected comes up I have access to the money I have paid in advance.
