Asset and equipment loans

Invest in new equipment or upgrade your business assets to grow your business.

Asset finance is primarily tailored towards self-employed clients, small business owners, and contractors. In saying that, it’s still possible to get personal asset finance, and one of the most popular options is for buying cars.

Compared to traditional forms of finance, the benefits of asset finance can include avoiding depreciation, freeing up capital, improving cash flow and reducing upfront costs.

Variable rate loan

As the name suggests, the interest rate can change over the life of the loan. This gives you flexibility, but can also leave you open to rate rises. These loans offer more flexible features like unlimited additional repayments, redraw, and offset accounts.

Fixed rate loan

Basically, this is the opposite of a variable rate loan. Your interest rate and repayments will stay the same during the fixed term, no matter what. So no surprises.

Split loan

You’re able to fix part of your loan, while leaving the rest variable.

Packaged loan

Professional packages offer discounts on standard variable and fixed rates, the waiving of fees, and in some cases, great deals on other products from the same lender. A packaged loan usually comes with one annual fee for the bundled products.

Introductory rate loan

Also known as ‘honeymoon’ loans, these offer a low interest rate for a short period (eg. a year), after which the rate moves to the standard variable rate.

Interest only loans

As the name suggests, you only pay the interest on the principal balance for a set term, with the principal balance unchanged.

Guarantor Home Loans

A guarantor uses the equity they’ve built up in an existing property to help you purchase your property sooner. Guarantors could be your parents, parent-in-law or a step parent or grandparents.

Other things to consider: Balloon payments


You choose to pay a larger sum of the loan value at the end of the loan term. The sum you pay is usually based on a fixed percentage of the total loan value.


Reduce your repayments when you first start paying off the loan.

Consider how this will affect the amount of interest you pay over the life of the loan and the total amount that is left to pay at the end of your monthly repayment term. The remaining sum will need to be paid in full in one lump sum.
