Savings Secured Loan

For all Retail CU members

Borrow your Retail CU savings balance at our lowest interest rate

Interest rate 2.86% (2.9% APR)

Sometimes you need money, but don’t want to dip into your savings.

With our Savings Secured Loan, your loan is secured against your Retail CU savings, protecting them whilst enabling you to still borrow money at a new lower interest rate of just 2.9% APR, our lowest ever rate. And remember… your savings continue to earn an annual dividend* (making the rate even better than most high street lenders!), and you benefit from our free Bereavement Fund too.

So, if you’re looking to borrow money at a great rate secured against your savings, our new Savings Secured loan is for you!
