NAB slashes rates by 25 basis points

NAB will cut its variable home loan and business rates following today's cash rate decision by the Reserve Bank.

The big four bank announced that it will reduce its variable rate for home loans by 0.25 per cent.

This announcement means NAB’s Variable Rate for Home Loans (Standard Variable Rate) will reduce from 5.60 per cent p.a. to 5.35 per cent p.a.

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.
