Standard Chartered CashOne Personal Loan Review 2024

Standard Chartered Bank, with a whopping $9.2 billion in total assets (as per its latest 2021 annual report), is one of the renowned banks in Singapore that offers personal loans to Singapore citizens, PRs and foreigners.

Their Standard Chartered CashOne personal loan is offered with competitive annual interest rates and effective interest rate (EIR). Currently, their interest rates are being advertised as starting from 2.88%, working out to an EIR of 10.4% and above. As most interest rates are personalised, the Standard Chartered CashOne loan rates you get might differ, depending on other factors (which we will talk about later).

In this review, we’ll weigh the pros and cons of taking up a Standard Chartered CashOne personal loan, and compare it against some of its closest competitors.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Lower interest rates as compared to other similar personal loans offered by other banks
  • Fast loan approval
  • Convenient online application with SingPass for quicker application
  • Instant cash disbursement (subject to loan approval)
  • No need to be an existing Standard Chartered customer to apply
  • Open to Singapore Citizens, PRs and foreigners with a Singapore Employment Pass aged 21 and above

Cons

  • Initial annual fee of $199 (deducted from your approved loan)
  • Higher minimum annual income requirement for foreigners as compared to other similar loans by other banks

Standard Chartered CashOne Requirements

Whether you’re a Singapore Citizen, Permanent Resident (PR) or foreigner with a valid Singapore Employment Pass, you’re eligible to apply for the Standard Chartered CashOne personal loan, as long as you’re aged 21 and above.

The minimum annual income requirements are $20,000 for Singaporeans and PRs and $60,000 for foreigners as per Standard Chartered CashOne’s application eligibility requirements. This makes Standard Chartered CashOne personal loan a great option for Singaporeans and PRs with lower annual salaries, especially those earning less than $30,000 per year.

As for new customers or existing customers who are SingPass holders applying with MyInfo, you’ll be required to submit a copy of your NRIC (front and back), your latest computerised payslip or latest 6 months’ CPF Contribution History Statement for the Standard Chartered CashOne personal loan application.

If you’d like to apply for a higher loan amount, you’ve got to prepare your latest Income Tax Notice of Assessment (NOA) in addition to the above required documents.

Standard Chartered CashOne Interest Rates & Fees

Loan tenure of 1 yearLoan tenure of 2 years
Interest rate2.88%2.88%
Annual fee$199None
Effective interest rate (EIR)6.95%6.95%
Monthly instalment$862$446
*Above estimated figures are based on an example of a monthly income of $2,500 of a Singapore citizen/PR and loan amount of $10,000. Note that the rate of interest on personal loans is subject to change from time to time at the discretion of Standard Chartered Bank.

While several banks do not charge any processing fees or initial annual fee, Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) charges an initial annual fee of $199 (deducted from your approved loan). You will not need to pay any more processing fees after the first year unless you miss any payments for your instalments, in which case you will have to fork out another $50 annually if any instalments are not paid on time for the preceding 12 consecutive calendar months.

Considering the $199 initial annual fee, Standard Chartered CashOne is more worthwhile if you’re taking out a big loan. To make things easier to understand, here is an example to illustrate.

Let’s say you’re taking up a $10,000 loan. It would mean that you’ll be paying a fee worth 1.99% of your principal amount. Although interest rates are being advertised by Standard Chartered as starting from 2.88%, working out to an EIR of 6.95% and above, in reality, interest rates are personalised, so yours might differ from this example which was calculated using Standard Chartered’s loan calculator.

Standard Chartered CashOne Application

Before you start applying for Standard Chartered CashOne or any other personal loans, you’ve got to be clear of the reason why you need to take up a personal loan, a manageable loan amount that you can afford to pay off in monthly instalments, the other costs involved such as Effective Interest Rate (EIR), processing fees, annual fees, vice versa.

Here are 3 simple steps to apply for Standard Chartered CashOne

Step 1

Apply via MoneySmart’s Personal Loans page

You may begin your application clicking on the Standard Chartered link.

If you choose to apply online via SingPass MyInfo, Standard Chartered Bank will pull your identity and income data from SingPass (which is already verified), thus cutting short the processing time. The approval-in-principle page will appear within minutes of submitting your MyInfo.

Step 2

Provide all documentation required

You’ll need to provide all the necessary documentation in order for Standard Chartered Bank to approve your personal loan application. This list of documents include:

  • NRIC or other identification details
  • Latest computerised payslip
  • Latest 6 months’ CPF Contribution History Statement
  • Latest Income Tax Notice of Assessment (NOA) if you wish to be considered for a higher loan amount

Step 3

Receive your cash disbursement instantly

The loan disbursement will be completed instantly upon Standard Chartered Bank’s approval of your online application.

Compare SCB CashOne vs HSBC personal loan vs UOB personal loan

Besides Standard Chartered CashOne, HSBC personal loan and UOB personal loan are also among the other popular options you would have come across on MoneySmart’s online personal loan comparison page while comparing their interest rates and benefits. Let’s pit these 3 personal loans against one another to help you make a better decision.

The key factors which we’ll look at are interest rates, annual fees, minimum annual income requirements and loan disbursement speed.

Among the 3 personal loans, SCB CashOne charges a reasonable interest rate of 2.88%, which is lower than the HSBC Personal Loan, and do not have an age limit in terms of the eligibility requirements. Moreover, it seems to offer the most attractive cash back benefits (3x cashback on your first month’s interest) as compared to HSBC Personal Loan (1.5% cashback), and UOB Personal Loan (0.5% cash rebate).

When it comes to minimum annual income requirement, HSBC Personal Loan and UOB Personal Loan have a higher minimum of $30,000 for Singaporeans and PRs, while SCB CashOne has a lower minimum annual income requirement of $20,000, making SCB CashOne a viable choice for Singaporeans and PRs with lower annual salaries, especially those earning less than $30,000 per year.

On the other hand, HSBC personal loan is a more attractive option than SCB CashOne for foreigners drawing annual salaries which are lower than $60,000.
