What is the safest bank to apply for a Credit Card?

I want to apply for a credit card because of its convenience, however owning a credit card has its pros and cons. Since this is my first time applying for a credit card, I fear that someone might try to take advantage of it in case I lose my credit card. I want to find out which bank would offer me the best security in case this happens.

Lowest rates for new and used car loans in Singapore

DBS charges interest rate of 2.28% for its car loans to individuals that apply online and that is the lowest rate offered for both new and used car loans in Singapore. In my opinion this makes DBS the most affordable option for those that require financing in order to purchase a vehicle. It is also worth noting that DBS is currently offering an even lower rate for the purchase of used cars (1.99% p.a.) in a promotion.

This may be the cheapest car loan refinancing option in Singapore

This may be the cheapest car loan refinancing option in Singapore as the bank allows borrowers to refinance their existing car loans for a very competitive rate of 2.08%, which is much cheaper than most rates for new loans. While the bank also offers loans for the purchase of new and used vehicles, these rates of 2.78% and 2.98% are not the cheapest available. If you are approved to refinance your existing car loan from another bank, you may be able to save thousands of dollars by switching to OCBC due to its refinance rate of 2.08%, which is significantly cheaper than those of most car loans offered by lenders in Singapore.

A no-no for individuals seeking the cheapest car loan

This car loan is a no-no for individuals seeking the cheapest car loan or borrowers seeking to refinance their existing car loan as interest rates of 2.78% and 2.98% don’t come cheap. Irrespective, UOB could be a good backup source of car financing for individuals that are not approved for loans from other banks. Additionally, the bank is unique because it offers flexible car loan repayment schemes and Certificate of Entitlement (COE) loans for used cars.
