Things to Know While Taking a Personal Loan

Your personal loan interest depends on three factors – your loan amount, the tenure, and the interest rate. You must remember that personal loan rates vary from individual to individual.

Before you take a personal loan, find out how much you can realistically pay back each month. The amount you pay each month will also depend on the tenure of the personal loan. A shorter tenure will mean larger instalments, while a longer one will involve smaller payments. Your total interest payments on a personal loan will be lower with a shorter tenure. A longer tenure will mean more interest payments.

Personal loan rates are calculated using the reducing balance method. Your interest obligation for the month will depend on the principal outstanding after previous repayments. With every payment, the principal outstanding goes down, and so does your interest burden. You can use the DBS Bank EMI calculator to estimate your monthly EMI obligations.
