MBSB Personal loan provides up to RM 300,000 of financing with a maximum repayment of 10 years with a fast approval process.

It comes with an attractive ECOF-i + 4.10% p.a with monthly reducing balance. At the time of writing BLR 6.43, you will be getting 11.1% p.a. How is this different from other banks who are offering 8.8% p.a. (flat rate) ?  The effective interest rate of flat rate is actually near double while with monthly reducing balance, you are probably getting the same interest rates as advertised.  So the effective interest rate for 8.8% p.a. would probably be somewhere 16% to 17% p.a.
