On Tuesday 6 December 2022, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) announced a further 25-basis point increase to the official cash rate. Following this decision to increase Australia's cash rate we have made the decision to raise interest rates for borrowers.

Our Variable Home Loan rates for existing mortgage holders will increase by 0.25%, effective from 20 January 2023. Members will soon receive correspondence outlining specific information in relation to their loan product/s and any relevant repayment changes.

On the deposit side, effective from 15 December 2022 we passed on increases across a number of our our term deposit products up to 0.40% and increases on various savings accounts up to 1.00%. Bonus saver accounts also increased up to 0.25% and will be effective from 1 January 2023.

Changes to the RBA cash rate is one of the factors that informs our pricing decisions, however, there are other factors that we consider such as economic and market conditions, cost to lend and the competitor landscape. This helps us to assess and to continue to offer competitive rates to our members.
