Representative Example

The rate you are offered will depend on your individual circumstances.

All loans are subject to status. The interest rate offered will vary depending on our assessment of your financial circumstances and your chosen loan amount. That's why you won't find a loan calculator on our website. To find out more about this and our commitment to transparency, visit our guide on: Why Shawbrook Bank doesn't use loan calculators.

Representative Example: for comparison purposes, 14.9% APR Representative based on a loan of £10,000 repayable over 60 months with an interest rate of 14.9% p.a. (fixed). Monthly payment of £232.53 total amount repayable £13,951.80.

We offer loans from £1,000 to £30,000 with loan terms from one to seven years. The maximum APR rate you could be offered is 29.9%.

Personal Loans FAQs

A personal loan is an amount of money borrowed from a bank or other lender that is repaid in fixed monthly instalments over an agreed period of time.

Most personal loans are ‘unsecured’ which means they are not secured against any asset such as your home. The lender you borrow from will also charge you a certain amount for lending the money to you; this is shown as an Annual Percentage Rate (APR). The APR reflects the total cost of borrowing and includes the interest rate (the amount you are charged for borrowing the money, a percentage of the total amount) and other additional fees and charges involved in taking out a loan.

More information can be found in: Shawbrook's ultimate guide to personal loans. 



Personal loans can be used for many different things, for example; helping to finance a car, a wedding, or a home improvement.

You can also consolidate your existing debts into one potentially more manageable monthly payment with a personal loan.

We offer personal loans which can be used for a variety of different purposes. To find out more about our loan purposes, click the links below:

Personal loans are unsecured loans, which means that they are not secured against any of your personal assets or property.

When you apply for a quote with us, we could offer you a guaranteed, personalised rate right from the start.

Unsecured loans are loans which are not secured against any of your personal assets such as your home or car.

Unsecured loans are typically for smaller amounts. Because they are riskier for lenders, they can be more expensive than secured loans. However, at Shawbrook, we will give you a clear picture of your guaranteed rate when you apply for a quote so you can decide whether this is the right option for you before you take out a loan.

Payments on your loan are calculated by considering how much you want to borrow, how long you want to borrow it for, and how much it will cost you to borrow this money including any fees. A lender will use the annual percentage rate (APR) on this sum to give you a fixed monthly payment over the duration of your loan.

Some lenders offer an online loan calculator to help you see what your repayments could look like if you chose to borrow with that specific lender.

At Shawbrook, we believe that loan calculators don’t accurately reflect what interest rate you’ll get when you apply for a loan. When you use a loan calculator, this may not be the actual rate you receive so it doesn’t give a clear picture of the rate you’ll get and the associated repayments until you have applied.

Instead of using loan calculators, we offer you a guaranteed rate through our quote tool which provides you with a breakdown of your repayment costs based on the actual APR that you’re eligible for. And don’t worry, applying for a quote will not affect your credit score.
