Fixed Term Rate

The interest paid on a loan may be either a fixed rate or a floating rate. For a fixed rate loan, the interest rate and hence payment amount is set at the date you take out your loan and remains the same throughout the term of your loan, irrespective of whether bank interest rates rise or fall. In New Zealand most banks offer six months to five year terms. Although there are seven and even ten year terms available from some banks.
