The Banker is an international publication operated by the Financial Times Ltd. In 1974, HLF was listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange as Singapore Finance Ltd and; it is managing the financial services of the Hong Leong Group in Singapore.

HLF actively offers corporate and personal loans, government assistance for SMEs( Small and Medium Enterprises), corporate finance and advisory services.

The company also provides HDB and private property loans to individuals. It has competitive mortgage options compared to other banks. Clients can stretch their loans for 35 years or until the borrower becomes 70 years. It also offers a wide range of mortgage plans tailored to suit the client’s needs. However, HLF’s interest on long-term home loans is high.

Hong Leong Finance, grants fixed-rate mortgages and floating rate mortgages to HDB build-to-other (BTO) flats and regular HDB flats. Fixed-rate mortgages have a specific interest rate during their lifespan. It helps borrowers to enjoy steady monthly installments. At the end of its lifespan, the loan adopts a floating rate which is tied to the HDB home Rate (HHR). Hong Leong Finance has fixed rate home loan packages that are up to 3 years.

Hong Leong Finance HDB Home Loans

HLF HDB loans have a longer duration of about 5 years when compared to regular home loans. Its loans have a lifespan of 35 years or till the borrower becomes 70 years old. It also offers a bridging loan for new homeowners of HDB flats which helps with the first deposit. This is favourable when you are waiting for the earnings from your previous home. Nonetheless, HLF’s fixed rate and floating rates are slightly higher than its competitors because of the 2.2% p.a. that is added after the introductory interest rates.
