2021 Business Loan Star Ratings and Awards

2021 Business Loan Star Ratings and Awards

Canstar has assessed and rated 54 business loan products from 10 providers as part of its Business Loan Star Ratings and Awards. 

Products were compared based on both price and features. For the price score, Canstar considered each institution’s pricing for businesses with different levels of risk, as well as the interest rate and fees that apply depending on the loan amount and security. 

The features component took into account over 100 product features, including whether the loan is available for a range of purposes and the guarantee and security options available. 

Based on this analysis, Canstar has given the top-performing business loans a 5-Star Rating. Products that achieved a 5-Star Rating in at least one borrowing profile were also recognised with an Outstanding Value – Business Loan Award. 

Canstar recognises that businesses have different needs and wants. As such, its Business Loan Star Ratings and Awards aim to provide businesses with results that suit their borrowing profile. Canstar considers both term loans and overdrafts, as well as the security type.
