Interest rate protection for housing company

Do you want to make your housing company’s financial planning and budgeting easier? Interest rate protection for your housing company loan. Protecting against rising interest rates is an important part of a housing company’s long-term and responsible financial management. Through protection, you fix interest rate expenses in the coming years and ensure that a rise in interest rates will not affect charges for financial costs.

Protection for housing company loans against rising interest rates

Benefits for the housing company:

  • Protection against rising charges for financial costs due to higher interest rates
  • Easier financial planning and budgeting in the housing company
  • Flexible repayment scheme: possibility for shareholders to make extra repayments and repayment holidays are also possible if required.
  • Customised interest rate protection takes the special needs of a housing company into account
  • No separate charge for the protection

An interest rate protection is a supplementary feature to housing company loans granted by OP Financial Group, which enables converting floating-rate loans to fixed-rate ones for a chosen period. The total interest rate for a protected housing company loan is based on the fixed reference rate plus the agreed markup.
