Product Review

Maybank, a commercial bank located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, is part of Maybank group, the fourth-largest bank in Southeast Asia. Its extension in Singapore, with over 60 years of banking experience, has a total net worth of S$81.5 billion, according to its latest annual report.

One of Maybank’s primary services is mortgage lending, which include attractive introductory interest rates for prospective homeowners. However, these rates tend to rise significantly after the first year, which is a trade-off that borrowers must consider. Maybank is also the first bank in Singapore to introduce Islamic financial services, such as Shari’ah-compliant property loans to executive businesses and regular home loans to individuals.

Maybank’s standard lending services for home loans include cash prizes, shopping vouchers, exclusive renovation loan packages, and other incentives. With over six decades of operation, Maybank has established itself as a reliable source of reasonable home loans in Singapore, as demonstrated by the globally recognized credit rating of “A1/P-1” given by S&P to its subsidiary in Singapore.

It’s essential to note that Maybank’s low introductory interest rates quickly increase when central bank rates change, affecting the overall loan repayment amount. As a result, individuals interested in refinancing their home frequently should evaluate Maybank rates, while borrowers considering to finance their home might find the bank’s rates unsatisfactory.

Maybank is a reputable and reliable bank that provides reasonable home loans with various incentives to its customers. However, borrowers must carefully weigh the trade-offs involved in balancing the introductory interest rates with the potential increase after the first year. It’s also crucial to consider central bank rate hikes when making decisions about refinancing.
