Our borrower risk grades

Our approved borrowers are allocated a risk grade based on their strength across each of our credit criteria. The risk grade corresponds to the level of risk levy that applies to the loan and therefore determines the borrower’s overall interest rate.

  • A Grade
  • B Grade
  • C Grade
  • D Grade
  • E Grade

Our A Grade borrowers

A Grade borrowers have the highest credit scores and a strong record of borrowing and repaying debt without missing repayments. They exhibit strong debt servicing capacity and are typically homeowners or have evidence of other assets.

Our B Grade borrowers

B Grade borrowers have high credit scores, solid credit histories and a record or repaying debt without missing repayments. They typically have a strong debt servicing capacity and are often homeowners or have evidence of other assets.
