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.
