Non-major lender the latest to hit investors with interest rate rise

By |
Non-major Bendigo Bank is the latest lender to hit investors with an interest rate rise as they move to address recent industry-wide concerns regarding residential investment lending

From Tuesday 1 September, Bendigo Bank's residential investment standard variable interest rate will rise by 0.20%.

The non-major’s residential investment package variable rate will also increase by 0.20% for new business and most existing investor variable rate loans.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank managing director Mike Hirst says implementing this measure supports the bank’s prudent management by appropriately pricing for risk and assists restraining investor mortgage book growth to less than 10% per month as required by APRA.

“When it comes to setting interest rates, our Bank takes into account a wide range of factors and carefully consider its key stakeholders including borrowers, depositors, staff, shareholders, partners and the wider community,” he said.

“We believe this approach considers the needs of our stakeholders while continuing to provide customers with market competitive rates,”

With interest rates at their lowest for more than 50 years, there are some great rates available. The best thing to do is to compare rates from all the lenders. Let us help take the leg work out of doing this - Compare Home Loans now
