What is a Fixed Rate?

A fixed rate means that the interest rate on your loan will not change for a set period of time, usually up to 5 years. Most rates will change to a variable rate after the fixed rate ends so it is important to understand what the future payments may be.

How long will it take to process a secured loan?

Secured loans will generally complete much quicker than a mortgage and in many cases, you can get your money within 10 days. This is dependant on a number of factors, of which your advisor will discuss with you as part of the process.

What is APRC?

APRC stands for annual percentage rate of charge. This shows you the annual cost of your loan or mortgage over its lifetime. It brings together all costs, including fees, and you should therefore use this figure when comparing multiple loans.

The APRC of a loan can be different to the interest rate, for example if you borrow £25,000 at 8% interest rate fixed for a term of 5 years, with a broker fee of £2,500 and a lender fee of £595, the APRC would be 9.41%.
