1 in 3 private home mortgages under a floating rate: MAS

For HDBs, that’s just 1 in 5 loans extended by financial institutions.

Over 1 in 3 or 37% of private home mortgages are under a floating rate as of Q2, according to the Monetary Authority of Singapore, making them more susceptible to changes in the interest rates.

In response to a question posed by MP Chua Kheng Wee Louis, MAS senior minister and minister in charge Tharman Shanmugaratnam named the percentage of mortgages that are under a floating rate: that is, 20% of loans extended for HDB flat purchases, and 37% of loans extended for private residential property purchases.
