What do you think about AHB-i?
Im doing this for asb n so far no regret. Have to have 2nd thought for this ahb.
Package just like the ASB loan. However, whether we gain or not, it depends on BFR and AHB return. If AHB can give average 7.5% average return then it will be attractive. Some investors & FEs say that we only need to pay 1st year installment. 2nd year onward, use the dividend yield to repay the loan. How good it is it depends on us.
yup. i done asb financing also and so far looking good. the only question is we dont know the return of this AHB. Let see how it perform this first year…. gagaga
yeah. ASB has proven track records. Thus people are confident to take the risk. But with AHB? It’s hard to say and too much risk to take.
We will never know how good AHB is until the results is out. Nonetheless, the return yield of AHB does not meet my requirements! hahaha! 🙂
I think it’s a good effort from Maybank to help others people that dosen’t have good cash to invest in AHB same as ASB.Maybe we don’t know about the return but it’s good for us to try invest at least minimum 10,000.
Got a question. What if someone takes a loan for this AHB say 50K but after a few months he withdraws the 50k from AHB and invests somewhere else. But still pay the bank’s monthly instalment.. is that possible?
Yes this is the real question, its already 2016 but come on guys, is there anyone who can helps answering the question ?
Normally, this kind of financing facility there will be a locking mechanism where the borrower will be unable to withdraw & keep the money.
