Bridge Loan

In finance, the term “bridge loan” refers to a short-term loan used to finance an endeavor after a long-term loan has expired and before a subsequent long-term loan takes effect.

In Switzerland, home loans obtained through variable mortgages (adjustable rate mortgages) are often used as bridge loans to fill time gaps between two cheaper fixed rate mortgages.
