The Game of Thrones saga has finally come to an end. And though many weren’t pleased with how
things ended, we were just amazed at how much the series taught us about handling a personal loan.
Yeah, you read that right, in between the twists, the turns and the thrills, GoT also had some very
valuable personal loan tips. Don’t believe us? Well, we knew you wouldn’t – that’s why we went ahead
and listed 5 personal lessons you can learn from this epic show. Check it out!
Always pay your debt.
A Lannister always pays his debts. It is something you hear over and over again throughout the series.
However, it’s more than a house slogan – it’s something we should learn from. Manage to successfully
pay your debts and you’ll notch up a pretty handy credit score and a good credit score is like a sword
that you can use to cut down your personal loan interest rates. So be like Tyrion, Queen Cersei or Sir
Jamie and always pay your debts, it will pay dividends in the future.
Switch alliances if it benefits you.
Tyrion Lannister was extremely loyal to the Lannister family. However, after years of being treated like
an outsider, he decided to switch alliances. He pledged his loyalty to Daenerys and was rewarded when
she named him as the ‘Hand of the Queen’.
Anyone with an existing personal loan has something to learn here. If your current interest rates are
proving to be a burden to deal with month after month, it makes sense to refinance your loan with
another lender. Maybe a new lender will appreciate your business more, just like how Daenerys
appreciated the services of Tyrion Lannister.
The Iron Bank will have its due.
‘The Iron Bank will have its dues’ is to the Braavosi, as ‘a Lannister always pays his dues’ is to the
Westeros. However, while not much is said about the Iron Bank in the entire series, it is basically how
the entire Lannister Kingdom gets its money. And Tyrion Lannister rightly highlighted the importance of
this powerful financial institution when he said “You can't run from them, you can't cheat them, you
can't sway them with excuses. If you owe them money and you don't want to crumble yourself, you pay
These words hold true to anyone with a personal loan, especially those with thoughts of defaulting on
their minds. You should know that, once you’ve borrowed a personal loan, you will have to repay it.
Failing to do so will ensure your finances crumble before your eyes. To begin with, your credit score will
go for a toss and if things get serious, your lender may also sue you for the money.
So if you’re a fan of the Game of Thrones, you should be a fan of these tips too. We are sure they’ll hold
you in good stride if you ever borrow a personal loan in the future. And if you ever need solid personal
loan advice or are in need of finance solutions, remember that we can be your Jon Snow.
