Understanding Common Financial Jargon

Navigating the world of finance often means encountering a variety of terms and jargon that can be confusing. To help you understand these concepts better, we’ve put together explanations for some of the most common terms you’ll come across when using our calculators and considering a loan.

Comparison Rate A comparison rate is a tool to help consumers identify the true cost of a loan. It includes the interest rate plus most fees and charges related to a loan, combined into a single percentage figure. This rate helps you compare the total cost of different loans more effectively, as it accounts for costs beyond just the interest rate.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR) The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is similar to a comparison rate but is used more commonly in some other countries. It represents the annual rate charged for earning or borrowing money. APR includes the nominal interest rate as well as any additional fees or costs involved in obtaining the loan.

Affordability Affordability refers to your ability to make loan repayments without undue hardship, based on your current income and expenses. Lenders use this assessment to ensure that borrowers are not offered loans that they cannot realistically repay, which is crucial for both the lender and borrower to avoid financial distress.

Principal The principal is the amount of money that you borrow and are obligated to repay. This does not include the interest or other charges that may accrue over the life of the loan. When you make a loan repayment, part of it reduces the principal, and the rest covers interest and fees.

Fixed Rate Loan A fixed rate loan is a loan where the interest rate remains the same for a specified term or for the entire duration of the loan agreement. This type of rate provides predictability and stability because your repayments will not change throughout the term of the loan. Fixed rate loans are ideal for those who prefer budget consistency and are not looking to take advantage of potential future rate decreases.

Variable Rate Loan A variable rate loan has an interest rate that can change over the life of the loan. These changes are usually tied to movements in an external benchmark or index, such as the Reserve Bank of Australia. The main advantage of a variable rate is the potential to pay less interest when rates decrease. However, this also means that your repayments could increase if the rates go up. Variable rate loans often offer more flexibility than fixed rate loans, such as the ability to make extra repayments without penalty.

Secured Loan A secured loan is one that is backed by collateral (security), such as a car or a house, which the lender can claim if the borrower fails to make payments. Secured loans often have lower interest rates than unsecured loans because they present less risk to the lender.

Unsecured Loan An unsecured loan does not require any collateral. Because there is a higher risk to the lender if the borrower defaults, unsecured loans typically have higher interest rates compared to secured loans.

Term of the Loan The term of the loan is the duration over which you will repay the loan. It can affect both the size of your repayments and the total amount of interest you will pay over the life of the loan. Longer terms can mean smaller monthly payments but more interest paid overall.

By familiarizing yourself with these terms, you can better understand the details of your loan options and make more informed decisions when managing your finances.
