How often is the interest paid out?

The most common scenario is for the interest to be paid out at the end of the loan term (BULLET). A detailed interest repayment schedule can be found under each asset individually, as it differs from loan to loan. There are four possible repayment methods:

LINEAR: The borrower pays the same amount each time a payment is made relative to the initial balance.
DECLINING BALANCE: The borrower pays equal percentage amounts of a principal balance which is decreased by subtraction of each prior increment of amortization from the original value of the loan.
ANNUITY: The borrower pays back in installments of the same size consisting of a loan repayment portion and an interest portion.
BULLET: The borrower pays the whole sum of the loan and interest at the end of the loan term.
BALLOON: The borrower pays minor installments of the loan before the end of the term and at the end of the term, the borrower repays the outstanding loan balance at once.
