Overdraft Accounts and Term Loans: What is an Overdraft Account, how does it work and how can it help you?
With today’s living cost and hike in prices on most items such as fuel, houses and cars in Malaysia, there may come a time when you run out of funds and your bank account gets barren and you can’t even get a decent meal? That is when the overdrafts come in handy.
Overdrafts are great for both short term and long term too! So it eases your worries such as making equipment purchases or operating expenses. Alliance One Account overdraft is an evergreen credit facility till you reach the age of 60!
Also, with its revolving nature, you can keep on borrowing the money and repay it at the same time. BUT bear in mind that the bank performs an annual review based on your credit report to re-evaluate the applicant’s overdraft amount limit within your borrowing period. This is the reason why overdraft is also known as the revolving line of credit.
What is a Term Loan, how does it work and how can it help you?
As the name suggests, the term loans are given for a medium to a long period of time which ranges between 35 years or till you reach the age of 70, whichever comes first.
How can Alliance One Account help you?
Okay, let’s just say you have a monthly income of RM8,000 and your “current financial situation” is shown in the table below:
EFFECTIVE INTEREST RATE (p.a.)
RM5,320 (DSR: 67%)
With an ALLIANCE ONE ACCOUNT
Up to 90% Margin of Financing!
✅ Overdraft (70%) = RM700,000
✅ Term Loan (20%) – RM200,000
ALLIANCE ONE ACCOUNT SIMULATION
Total Outstanding Balance to be consolidated = RM 510,000
RM350,000 + RM50,000+ RM80,000 + RM30,000
Base Rate + 3.06% p.a. = 6.88% p.a.
Min. Monthly repayment = RM2,924*
*Based on the daily calculated interest rate
= Utilized amount of overdraft facility * (6.88% * No. of days in the month / 365 days)
As a result,
Save on interest = (7.32%)% – 6.88% = 0.44%
Pay Less per Month = RM5,320 – RM2,924 = RM2,396 (DSR improved by 45%)
