How do you get the best personal loan interest rates?

The rates you’ll see advertised are typically available to people with the best profile (generally those with high-paying jobs, have had credit before and an excellent credit score), not the majority of those applying.

For everyone else, the rate offered by lenders will vary based on your risk profile.

How is your risk profile determined?

Each lender has their own matrix for risk profiles, but they all look at:

  • Loan amount
  • Reason for loan
  • Credit Score
  • Income
  • Surplus
  • Age
  • Residency Status
  • Relationship status
  • Dependants
  • Employment information
  • Living arrangements
  • Any recent negative financial habits
  • Vehicle information

Do all lenders assess risk differently?

If a lender finds you a high-risk borrower, the best-case scenario is that they may offer you a higher interest rate.

But risk appetite varies between lenders; while one lender may be comfortable accepting your application, another may decline you.

A secured loan, where you put your car or house as security, is low-risk lending. If you default on your loan, the lender can take that security and sell it to recoup their losses. Low-risk lending will have lower fees and lower interest rates (which means you’ll pay less overall).

If the loan is secured by an asset of lower value or not secured at all, the risk is much higher. High-risk lending will have higher fees and higher interest rates (which means you’ll pay more than you might need to).

Applying at each lender is risky too as it actually negatively affects your credit score with each application. So we recommend using our Money Matchmaker ™ which will show results for 10 lenders without affecting your credit score.
