Split Loan

Split Loan

Combining the security of a fixed rate home loan and the benefits of a variable loan, the Split Loan option allows you the  freedom to choose how much money you assign to each loan type.  Common split loan ratios are 50:50, 70:30 or 60:40 over a two-way fixed and variable rate. The key consideration generally comes down to the amount of risk you want to take on the cash rate going up or down.

Advantages & disadvantages

Advantages

  • Competitive interest rates over a variety of fixed and variable loan types.
  • Flexibility – you can choose which portion you would like to fix and which portion you would like to be on variable terms.
  • You can choose loan options that suit your needs.
  • Fixed rate portion offers rate and repayment security and peace of mind.
  • The variable rate gives you repayment flexibility and an offset account
  • Split loans are often ideal for property investors. Many keep their owner-occupier loan on a variable rate, while the investment property loan is kept to fixed terms in a bid to assist with the management of cash flow for the loan/property investment.

Disadvantages

  • By splitting your loans you limit the upside benefits in the event of interest rate reductions
  • There are penalties if you wish to break a fixed rate
  • You cannot refinance to another institution (potentially) during the fixed rate period
