Why Personal Loan interest rates are higher than other forms of loans?

loan to applyYou can get a home loan at 10%, education loan at 11% and a car loan at 13%. But when it comes to personal loan, lenders charge a higher rate (like 16% or even more). Why personal loans attract higher interest rates?

Personal loans are unsecured form of loans. This means that lenders do not have any recourse on any security in case the borrow defaults. As a result, lenders give personal loans at higher interest rates to compensate themselves for higher default risk that they are taking.

So how do lenders decide what rate to charge from different personal loan customers?

Everything for lenders boils down to a simple concept, higher the risk, higher the interest rate. So from a borrower who is considered safe, lenders will charge lower interest rates.

There are several factors that are used to assess the risk – current income, income stability, profession, age, existing loan EMIs, past loan repayment history, etc.

So if you are in a stable job, have a good income and do not have too many existing loans, the lender will lend to you at a lower interest rate as you are considered a safe borrower with lower default risk. However, if you have too many loan EMIs and have not be regular in your repayments, then you will be considered a risky borrower and lender will increase interest rate at which personal loan will be give to you.

Your past loan repayment history, as depicted by your credit score plays a major role in your risk assessment. So if you are unsure about your perceived riskiness as a borrower, to get in touch with lenders to understand the interest rate ranges that are applicable to different types of borrowers. Once you know the possible interest rates, you can use personal loan EMI calculators to find out much you EMI will be.
