Variable Interest Rates On Hold For March

lender-panel

………..

Today’s March 7th meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has announced to keep the cash rate on hold at 1.5%. We expect this to remain stable for the remainder of the year.

In the last months we have seen a number of lenders increasing some of their variable rate products. We have seen increases in interest only loans and property investment loans for new and existing borrowers. This is an attempt to slow down the housing boom by making it more expensive for property investors to make future purchases. However, money is so cheap at the moment that even the small rate rises is having very little effect.

Banks and other lenders are continually reviewing their variable and fixed interest rates and we will keep you updated on any changes that may occur in the next month.

Interest Rates On Hold For October at 1.5%

rba

 

The Reserve Bank of Australia has today announced that it has decided to keep the cash rate on hold at 1.5%. The economy has shown some signs of growth and it is expected that inflation is tracking to exceptions.

The new Reserve Bank Governor, Phillip Lowe, warned earlier this month that the government are required to play a bigger part in stimulating economic growth rather than rely on the RBA to reduce interest rates. This is a warning that unless something catastrophic happens, further reductions in interest rates are less likely in the future.

We expect that most lenders will leave their variable interest rates unchanged but we will continue to monitor lenders for rate changes outside the official rate. If there are any changes we will list them below.

Current Bank Interest Rates Rate Cut and Date
Adelaide Bank / Bendigo Bank No Change Announced
