Product Review

Maybank is under the umbrella of the prestigious Maybank group. It is the 4th-ranked bank that is prominent in Southeast Asia. Maybank’s extension in Singapore has a total net worth of S$81.5 billion (according to its latest annual report) with 60 years of banking experience.

Maybank is a progressive commercial bank that offers mortgaging services. It is located in Kuala Lumpur (the capital city of Malaysia) but conducts 25% of its operation in Singapore. The bank is known to offer attractive introductory interest rates to prospective homeowners. However, these rates rise significantly after the first year.

Maybank is the first bank to initiate Islamic financial services such as Shari’ah-compliant property loans to executive businesses and regular home loans to individuals. Its standard home loan services for home loan applications include cash prizes, shopping vouchers, exclusive renovation loan packages and many more.
With over 6 decades of operation, Maybank is recognised as a reliable source of reasonable home loans in Singapore. The bank’s branch in Singapore has the globally recognised credit rating of “A1/P-1” which was given by S&P. This rating holds a high grade on the assessment scale.

Maybank offers low first-year interest rates that quickly increase when market rates change- which affects the overall loan bill. Therefore, Individuals interested in refinancing their home loans frequently should consider the bank’s services. While borrowers considering mortgages with total loan cost will find the bank’s offerings unsatisfactory.
