What is a secured loan?
A secured loan is a loan in which the borrower pledges an asset (e.g. a car or property) as collateral for the loan.
What is an unsecured loan?
Unsecured loans are monetary loans that are not secured against the borrower's assets. These often take the form of credit card debt, personal loans, bank overdrafts, credit facilities or corporate bonds.
What is a balloon payment?
A balloon payment is a large, lump-sum payment made at the end of a long-term loan. It is commonly used in car finance loans as a way of reducing monthly repayment figures. Be aware that once you reach the end of your loan period, that balloon amount becomes payable.
What is the effective annual rate?
The effective annual rate is the actual interest rate that you pay on a loan if the loan is affected by compounding. This loan calculator compounds interest on a monthly basis. For information on interest rates and APR, see our article What Is APR? How Does APR Differ From Standard Interest Rate?
What is the formula for this loan calculator?
This loan calculator uses the following formula to calculate loan figures:
Monthly payment = [rate + rate / ( (1+rate) ^ months -1) ] x principal loan amount
