Standard Chartered does not offer the least expensive debt consolidation loans for new customers. However, it is a great option for those seeking to refinance their existing debt consolidation plan, due to its current promotion.

What Makes Standard Chartered's Debt Consolidation Plans Stand Out to Borrowers
Standard Chartered charges one of the lowest interest rates (from 3.98% p.a.) on the market for debt consolidation loans. However, the bank also charges a processing fee of S$199, which is much more than those of other lenders. For this reason, Standard Chartered is not the best choice for those seeking to apply for a debt consolidation plan for their outstanding loans.
With that being said, Standard Chartered's current promotion makes it a great option for those seeking to refinance their current debt consolidation loan. The bank is currently offering 5% cashback to refinancing customers, which drives down the overall cost significantly. This is especially true for debt consolidation loans with larger balances, as borrowers with these loans stand to earn more cashback. Please keep in mind that Standard Chartered advertises interest rates starting from 3.98% p.a. (7.70% EIR). This suggests that not all borrowers will receive this low rate. This makes it important to enquire about your eligibility before applying.
