Ocean Finance, a trading style of Intelligent Lending limited. We are a broker, not a lender. To find you a loan, we work with a preferred lender panel as well as panels operated by other brokers. We will search the lenders in order of who offers the best representative APR, first from our preferred panel and then from the panels of other brokers.

Please note, our website is completely free for you to use, however we may be paid a fee or commission by the lenders or brokers we introduce you to.

What is a personal loan?

A personal loan is a type of credit that makes a one-off payment of cash into your account. You then make a single fixed repayment each month, with interest, for the lifetime of the loan to pay it back.

At Ocean, we can find you a personal loan between £100 and £10,000. You can then spread repayments over 3 to 60 months.

Personal loans are unsecured. This means you don’t need to provide us with something you own, like your home, as security.

But because the lender doesn’t have this added security, the amount you can borrow is less with a personal loan than with, say, a homeowner loan that is secured to your property. The interest rate is also likely to be higher.

Benefits of personal loans

  • Personal loans may allow you to borrow more than you could with a credit card
  • With a personal loan, you agree how much you'll pay each month towards your loan. Your repayments are fixed – as is the interest rate – which makes budgeting straightforward
  • A personal loan is unsecured, so your home is not at risk

Things to consider

  • We’ll look at your credit history when you apply for a personal loan. We specialise in helping borrowers with imperfect credit scores but you should be aware that if you’ve struggled with credit in the past, you may not get the loan or interest rate you want
  • Personal loans tend to come with a higher interest rate than secured loans
  • If you don’t keep up with your personal loan repayments, it'll affect your credit history. This will make it harder and more expensive for you to borrow in the future

Common Questions

Can I get a personal loan if I have a bad credit history?

If you have struggled to keep up with credit card or loan repayments in the past, you may find that you don’t qualify for some of the best personal loan deals that you see advertised. This is because you’ll have a bad credit score.

But that’s not to say you won’t qualify for any personal loans. At Ocean, we specialise in helping borrowers who don’t have the best credit history or who have not had chance to build much of a credit score. If you’ve been turned down by a high-street lender, we may still be able to find you the personal loan you want.

Just bare in mind you may have to pay more interest or borrow less if you have a history of bad credit.

Is a personal loan secured or unsecured?

A personal loan is unsecured. This means that your home, car, jewellery or any other valuables you own won't be used as security on the loan.

This can make personal loans a less risky form of borrowing than some other options. If you start to miss your repayments, your home will not be at risk. However, missing payments will negatively affect your credit rating.

Can I pay my personal loan off early?

This depends on the lender. Some lenders allow you to pay it off early without any early repayment charges.

If you're able to make overpayments – perhaps because you’ve had a pay rise or received some extra cash – you can clear your balance early.

Will I get an instant decision online?

Yes. At Ocean, we'll provide you with an instant decision if we find you a lender.

Fill in our online form and simply tell us how much you’d like to borrow, over how long and what you plan to use the money for. We will then search our panel of lenders to find you a loan.
