How the loans are compared
Loans which qualified for the awards were ranked according to their comparison rate and the awarding of feature points (“points”).
The comparison rate incorporates the basic interest rate with all fees necessary to establish and maintain the loan. The lower the comparison rates the better.
Points were awarded to loans according to nine main criteria. The more points the better.
The comparison rate was multiplied by 100 and the points deducted. The lower the total the better.
