Cap loan

With a cap loan, the interest rate is variable. But it has an upper limit — the cap that gives it its name. In exchange for the cap, you pay a so-called cap premium, which depends on the cap and the term.

If there is an upper limit, there is of course also a lower limit — the so-called floor. This then lowers the premium again. For private investors, however, the cap loan is not a very common form of loan. You can find out more about the types of loans that are granted in our podcast episode "Alles Annuitätendarlehen, oder was?".
