Adelaide Bank has announced that new and existing variable rate loans will increase by 0.10 per cent, effective Thursday 15 December, while the fixed rates changes vary from a slight decrease of 0.05 per cent for one-year fixed to a 0.26 per cent increase for three-year fixed loans.
Damian Percy, general manager of Adelaide Bank commented: “The decision to adjust rates takes into account a wide range of factors, including pressure on funding costs, balancing the interests of borrowers and savers, and maintaining competitive pricing.
“We remain committed to delivering value to customers through affordable interest rates and smart product features such as 100 per cent offset for fixed and variable customers and easy-to-use budgeting software linked to transactions through online banking,” Mr Percy concluded.
