AMP hits investors with 35-point hike, cuts LVR to 50%

The challenger bank has today announced changes to investor lending to manage its portfolio and align with regulatory requirements.

AMP Bank’s variable interest rates for new and existing investment property loans will increase by 35 basis points.

For all new investor property loans, the maximum loan-to-value ratio (LVR) is reducing to 50 per cent. This change applies to all new loans with an investment property as security and includes loans to SMSFs.

The changes to interest rates are effective 23 June 2017 for new customers and from 26 June 2017 for existing customers. LVR change is from 21 June for new investment property loans and 1 July for SMSF investor loans.

AMP Bank group executive Sally Bruce said the measures are needed to ensure AMP operates within its regulatory obligations.
