Charged in addition to the base Annual Interest Rate. Only payable on the amount that is overdue and stops when the overdue amount is paid.


If your Loan is Brokered to An External Lender

Loanwise is also a Finance Broker. All loans other than unsecured Personal Loans (cost of borrowing detailed above) are sourced from a network of external lenders.

As a broker we work with multiple external lenders, offering you a simpler way to apply for a loan. Through our network we may increase the chance of finding a great product for you, without you having to complete multiple applications. Multiple applications through different finance companies could have a negative impact on your credit score.

When we receive an application we will place your loan request with the lender in our network who may offer a loan to suit your needs. Interest rates vary from lender to lender and are dependent on credit risk, security offered, employment status, financial obligations, family status, etc.

As with any broker we can only place your loan with external lenders in our network who are prepared to lend to you - we recommend you seek financial advice before accepting any loan offer.
