Conister Bank personal loans review December 2020
If you live on the Isle of Man, Conister Bank could provide you with a personal loan of £500 to £25,000 to be repaid over 12 to 60 months.

Paying a large amount at one time can be difficult, but Conister Bank can help you pay the money back over a set period with a competitive and flexible fixed-rate loan. It’s quick and simple to apply online at the Conister Bank website, although you will need to speak to an advisor in a branch or over the phone before you are approved.
If you’re approved for a personal loan with Conister Bank, it’ll act as a direct lender, not a broker.
Key features of Conister Bank personal loans
Interest rates are fixed for the duration of your repayment period, but the rate you’re offered will depend on factors such as the amount you apply for, the term of the loan, your credit rating and your income. It may differ from the advertised ‘Representative APR’.
What is APR?If you’re comparing any credit-based products, it won’t be long before you’ll come across the Annual Percentage Rate (APR). This figure is designed to provide an annual summary of the cost of a loan. It takes into account both interest and any mandatory charges to be paid (for example an arrangement fee) over the duration of a loan.
All lenders must calculate the APR of their products in the same way, and must tell you the APR before you sign an agreement, so for consumers it can be a handy tool for comparison.
Bear in mind, however, that lenders are only obliged to award this rate to 51% of those who take out the loan – the other 49% could pay more. That’s why it’s often referred to as the representative APR.
