Deposit-Linked Mortgage Plan
If you need to apply for a mortgage, while you have extra funds and would like to earn for a better interest rate, you can consider applying for the mortgage plan with a deposit-linked mortgage feature to enjoy a preferential interest rate.
Advantages of deposit-linked mortgage
When adopting a deposit-linked mortgage plan, the borrower can enjoy a preferential interest rate which is the same as the mortgage interest rate for savings deposit balance up to 50% of the outstanding principal loan amount.
