Loan calculator

The loan calculator can be used to find out your monthly payment and cost of borrowing for a fixed-rate loan but also considering an annual interest variation. For this, both the French method and the German method are used.

Before applying for a loan, this loan calculator offers you the possibility to visualize different scenarios.
