As most readers know, capital has become a lot more expensive for Canadian lenders. Now it’s affecting secured credit lines. We just heard from a major non-bank lender that they’re raising their interest rate to prime + 1% on their line of credit (LOC). As far as we can remember, this lender has always offered LOCs at prime rate. Hopefully rate premiums on credit lines don’t become a trend! (If they do, it will probably/hopefully be a short-term trend.)
