Interest Rate Cut – All signs show Banks wont pass on the full amount

Bank of Queensland (BOQ) gave us the first indication that the Banks will not pass on the full interest rate cut after the Reserve Bank of Australia cut interest rates by 0.5%.

BOQ announced yesterday that they will only be passing on 0.35% of the 0.50% stating the usually higher costs of funding.

ANZ will make their decision Friday week, but it is almost certain that Commonwealth Bank, NAB and Westpac will not reduce their interest rates by the full half percent.

Smaller lenders such as ING, St George, Bank West, RAMS and many other lenders require funding from the major banks they too will follow the majors.

We will keep you updated on what these lenders will do in the coming days.
