Knowledge is power and there is often a knowledge imbalance when you are talking to your bank.
You want the money when you need it. It might be to buy a new house or car. It might be that you need to increase the overdraft to pay bills or a tax liability. The truth is, normally your stress level is high and you just need an answer – and quick.
But you don’t know what you don’t know. The banks are great at lending us all money – that’s their job, but they are also in business to make a profit for their shareholders. This is why you need to be an informed user of financial services.
Do you know what is a fair fee to set up a loan? Do you know what rebates you can get when you get a new mortgage? What is the best interest set up? Do you know what file notes the bank person is writing about you? Is it fair that a new bank client will get incentives but an existing client gets … zip?
Knowledge is power but you need to go get that knowledge, otherwise you’re just a cash cow to the banks.
We recommend you get independent advice before you talk to the bank – even if you’re an existing bank client.
