FNB bank provides top-notch services and products that compete with the standards of international banking, but within the boundary of the Shariah law. Islamic banking is in stark contrast with conventional banking and is slowly replacing the latter mode of banking.
This is because the benefits of Islamic banking were evident in the aftermath of the 2008 Financial Collapse and experts suggested that the crisis could have been avoided had it not been for conventional banking. The main difference between the two banking styles is the fact that Islamic banking is asset based and it does not treat money as a commodity.
Hence, to safeguard yourself against future crises it is best to contract the services of a reputable bank such as FNB. FNB provides authentic Shariah compliant Islamic banking services since other multinational banks sell the same conventional banking services under the umbrella of Islamic banking.

Applying for car loans is not as complicated as many people make it to be. Most people have a bank account and thus a relationship with a financial institution. This is the bank which should be at the top of the list of institutions considered for requesting financing since the bank is familiar with your financial habits and is likely to offer a lower rate of interest on the loans as compared to banks who have never worked with you.
Once the application has been approved, consider putting down a decent down payment, so that the borrowed amount is at its minimum. This will reduce the cost and save money over the duration of the loan. Ensure that the maturity of the funding is acceptable to you; that it is neither too early nor too late. The former will leave you struggling to pay your monthly instalments, while the latter will be more expensive in the longer term.

Vehicle financing involves raising cash or funds from third party sources to acquire a car. Typically, most individuals do not have the means to shell out thousands of dollars to purchase cars since cars are very expensive assets, even if they are second hand. Even individuals, who have sufficient savings, may hesitate to do so since it reduces liquid resources if needed in an emergency.
Hence, individuals and businesses alike resort to vehicle financing as a means of procuring a car, whether from a dealer or manufacturer. Banks offer different types of consumer financing options to their customers, and car financing is one of them. Similarly, credit offers may be available from dealers and manufacturers who initiate easy instalment schemes to boost sales and facilitate their customers. Vehicle financing is also known as leasing or hire purchase agreements and an interest rate is also charged to the consumer.
