Factors Affecting Gold Loan Interest Rates

Gold loan interest rates play a pivotal role in determining the overall cost of borrowing and the affordability of the loan for the borrower. These rates are influenced by factors such as:

Loan Amount

The loan amount plays a critical role in determining the gold loan interest rate. According to RBI’s guidelines, IIFL Finance provides up to 75% of the total value of gold you pledge.

Gold Value

The market value of gold directly affects the interest rate of the loan. Higher gold purity (like 22 carats vs 18 carats) means more of the valuable metal in your gold asset, boosting its worth and lowering your interest rate.

Market Conditions

The interest rates and the cost of a gold loan per gram can be affected by changes in the market demand. If gold prices are high, the risk of the lender is low, whereas if gold prices are low, the lender's risk increases, and interest rates would go up.

Repayment Frequency

The interest rate of your gold loan will also depend on your repayment frequency. As we have multiple options available where you can choose to repay the interest amount on monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis, the interest rates will also fluctuate accordingly

Calculation of Gold Loan Interest Rate

Two main factors affect the calculation of the gold loan rate of interest:

  1. Loan Amount : The gold loan amount you want to borrow is the primary factor in calculating the rate of interest of the gold loan. The higher the loan amount, the higher the overall interest rate.

  2. Loan Tenure : The loan tenure specifies the period of your monthly loan repayment obligations. The higher the loan tenure, the lower the interest rate.

Visit the IIFL website to use the gold loan calculator , and calculate your gold loan amount in a few simple steps by putting in the desired loan amount, value of gold articles and the loan tenure.

Always remember that the gold loan interest rate depends on the specific loan scheme chosen and its tenure. This knowledge of gold loan interest rates is paramount as it directly impacts the overall borrowing cost of the loan. Consequently, securing a gold loan with a low-interest rate can significantly reduce repayment costs and alleviate financial strain.
