  • Interest rate fixation, loan term extension and diversification of repayment dates

    SHR aims for the appropriate management of its portfolio by extending loan terms while working to achieve optimum balance between fixed and floating interest rates. Furthermore, it will seek to reduce the risk in refinancing activities by such means as diversifying repayment dates.
