BankSA cuts business and home loan interest rate

Tuesday, 3 May, 2016

BankSA today announced a reduction of 25 basis points in its standard variable home loan rate for owner occupiers to 5.42% per annum (comparison rate 5.59% per annum*). The standard variable rate for investment loans will also decrease by 25 basis points to 5.67% per annum (comparison rate 5.83% per annum*).

The variable rate for small business loans will also be reduced 25 basis points. The changes are effective 23 May 2016.

BankSA Chief Executive Nick Reade said today’s decision is a welcome financial boost to South Australian home owners and those looking to buy a new home.

“We know that this rate cut will make a significant difference to our customers and hope that it lifts both consumer and business confidence locally,” said Mr Reade.

“With interest rates remaining at low levels, there is also no better time for customers to come and see us to discuss BankSA’s highly competitive variable and fixed rate options.”
