    RHB offers 3 main types of personal loans which are as follows

    1. Personal Financing: This is the standard personal loan offered by RHB. The loan can be acquired for cash consumption and has no designated purpose making it an ideal choice to get financing for various miscellaneous expenses. The loan amount borrowed can be used in any way deemed fit by the borrower. Loan amounts can go as high as RM150,000 with tenures going up to 7 years.
    2. ASB/ASB2 Financing: This loan is ideal for borrowers who wish to purchase ASB/ASB2 units to achieve their financial goals. The loan amounts offered are higher starting from RM20,000 going up to RM200,000. The tenures offered by the loan are also high with tenures ranging up to 30 years or until the borrower attains the age of 65. The loan is a secured product and will utilise the ASB/ASB2 certificate as collateral.
    3. Automatic Standby Overdraft: This loan is ideal for borrowers who are in need of extra cash in a hurry. The borrower can withdraw the extra cash from their account either for personal consumption or to meet business costs. The loan requires collateral such as a fixed deposit. The interest charged on this loan is only charged against the amount utilised.

    Q. How is the interest rate charged on the loans?

    A. The interest rate charged on the loans is based on the Rule 78 method where the initial instalments paid will comprise a larger percentage of the interest of the loan and the latter half of the instalments will comprise a larger percentage of the principal loan amount.

    Q. Is there a lock-in period on the loan?

    A. Yes. For the Personal loan, the lock-in period is 6 months whereas the ASB/ASB2 Financing has a lock-in period of 2 years.

    Q. Will loans settled after the lock-in period but before the maturity of the tenure attract any penalties?

    A. No. Once the lock-in period has been completed, settlement of loans will not attract any early settlement charges.

    Q. How is the exit fee on ASB/ASB2 Financing computed?

    A. The fee is computed by taking into account the difference between the ASB/ASB2 board rate and the ASB/ASB2 offer rate. The following formula is used:

    Exit fee = [(a-b)/100] X c X (d/365) where a is the board rate, b is the offer rate, c is the original financing amount and d is the number of days with the bank on the loan agreement.
