HSBC Premier Floating Rate Home Loan

How an HSBC Premier Floating Rate Home Loan works

If the interest rate varies on an HSBC Premier Floating Rate Home Loan, it is usually in line with changes in the Reserve Bank's official cash rate. As a result, both the interest rate applied to your loan and the amount you are required to pay on a monthly or fortnightly basis may also rise or fall.

If interest rates fall, you get a useful choice:

  • To reduce the amount of your repayments


  • To continue making repayments at the higher level, helping you pay off your loan faster

Additional repayments to shorten the loan

  • Make extra payments increasing your monthly repayments above the minimum
  • 'Lump sum' repayments also make a substantial difference over the life of your loan

Split your loan for extra security

By 'splitting' part of your loan into a fixed interest rate component, you can protect yourself against rising interest rates.

Before you apply, it's a good idea to make sure you are prepared.
