Banks fail in lending advice

January 19, 2017

If you want to take out a revolving credit, there is a piece of advice. In most cases this is not a daily routine. Then it is nice that the lender gives you text and explanation about the loan that you are going to take out. Research by the NIKWA, Netherlands Institute for Quality Test, has drawn the following conclusion: the advice from ABN Amro, ING, Rabobank and SNS Bank on taking out a revolving credit falls short on a number of points.

Banks fall short

The research conducted was conducted at eight different branches of the four banks spread across the Netherlands. The investigation had not been announced. In all cases, the test person made an appointment for a consultation, applied for a revolving credit with a fixed amount of monthly repayment. The amount of credit and loan target were the same for every appointment of the test person, the mystery shopper of NIKWA. The study did not investigate taking out a personal loan.

Research results:

  • In many cases, the test person was not told the pros and cons of a personal loan and the pros and cons of a revolving credit
  • Often the total amount (the loan amount plus interest after expiry) of the revolving credit was not mentioned
  • The test person received a written quotation in only slightly more than half of the appointments
  • The conversations took place in a room where other customers were also in less than half of the tests. For some appointments, the consultation took place at the counter in the branch itself
