NAB group executive personal banking Gavin Slater said in making the decision to change interest rates, the bank considers a range of factors.

“The circumstances of each decision will always vary and we must take into account factors such as competition, regulatory capital requirements and funding costs,” Mr Slater said.

“Today’s decision balances the needs of our home loan customers with our shareholders.”

The change applies to owner occupier and residential investment variable rate home loans.

For owner occupiers with NAB’s Variable Rate for Home Loans (Standard Variable Rate) the rate will reduce from 5.60 per cent p.a. to 5.35 per cent p.a.
