BANKS DECIDE INTEREST RATE FOR CAR LOANS
KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 – The Association of Banks in Malaysia (ABM) today dismissed a call by National Union of Bank Employees (NUBE) for it to lower interest rate for national cars, saying that it was decided by individual commercial bank.
In a statement here, ABM executive director, Chuah Mei Lin, said the interest rates for car loans were determined by commercial banks themselves respectively based on their cost of funds, funding availability, loan growth and business strategies.
“Commercial banks will make such adjustments to the car loan interest rates to best suit their business models and customers,” she said.
Chuah said notification of any interest rate changes would be made by banks promptly to all respective stakeholders including their panel of car dealers.
“It is imperative that customers study the best financing options offered by commercial banks first before making a decision,” she said.
