About Barclays

Barclays offer a whole range of financial products and services, from mortgages to savings and current accounts. They have four core focusses – personal banking, corporate banking, investment banking and management, and wealth management.

In terms of the personal loans you can take out with Barclays, they offer unsecured loans from £1,000 to £50,000. An unsecured loan is a type of credit that doesn’t require collateral – you won’t need to secure the loan against the value of an asset, such as your home.

These loans come with a range of APRs, which tend to depend on the amount you’re looking to borrow, as well as your personal circumstances. To apply for a Barclays loan, you must already be a Barclays customer, with a current or savings account, a Barclays mortgage, or credit card from BarclayCard. Customers can top up existing loans, or even take out a second loan if they need to.

Why Apply Through My Financial Broker?

  • Soft Credit Checks Only: When you make an application with a direct lender, generally a hard credit check is performed, which can have an impact on your credit score. So applying with multiple lenders to see if you’re eligible isn’t always the best idea. You can instead use a broker service like My Financial Broker – applying with us won’t affect your credit score, and we can put you in touch with a lender with whom you meet all the basic criteria.
  • Loan Provider Options: We have a large number of lenders in our network, all of which will have slightly different loan requirements. So by applying with us, you can potentially increase your chances of approval.
  • No Hidden Fees or Charges: As we work on a commission basis with our lenders, we don’t charge our customers a fee – it’s completely free to use our services!
