On 3 May, the Reserve Bank of Australia announced an increase in the official cash rate. The four major banks have since announced they are increasing their standard variable home loan rates.
Keystart’s interest rate policy is to use the average of the standard variable home loan rate of the four major banks, which will be 4.76%. The loan products we use to benchmark are:
- ANZ: Standard Variable Home Loan (4.64% effective 13 May 2022)
- CBA: Standard Variable Home Loan (without the Wealth Package) (4.80% effective 20 May 2022)
- NAB: Tailored Home Loan Variable Rate (4.77% effective 13 May 2022)
- Westpac: Rocket Repay Home Loan (4.83% effective 17 May 2022)
As a result, Keystart is increasing its rate to 4.76% effective from 20 May 2022.
