Current OCBC Extra Cash Rate

Product Review

Many banks and credit facilities offer different interest rates among which OCBC is known to stand out. The bank’s ExtraCash loan interest rate is at 5.54% with an EIR of 10.96%. With brief analysis, it is easy to conclude that this rate isn’t the lowest in the market. Notwithstanding the interest rate, OCBC still offers one of the best options for
borrowers earning below S$30,000 annually, who could not get loans from other lenders. This means that when you consider lenders that have transparent interest rates, OCBC has one of the best rates for individuals on the lower end of the salary band.

However, in Singapore, the OCBC ExtraCash loan still ranks high on the list of more expensive borrowing options, this is
attributed to the bank’s flat interest rate which is considered high by many. It is estimated to be somewhere around 5%.
The processing fee is also relatively expensive as it charges an estimated S$200 which sometimes is equivalent to 2% of
the total loan amount.

However, Borrowers can benefit from OCBC’s transparency. And this is what sets the bank apart from other lenders.
Because in the credit industry transparency matters a lot because borrowers would know the full implication of their
decision, unlike the ones which are not transparent.
