Movements in interest rates


5/12/2003

Bendigo Bank will pass on to a range of borrowers and depositors this week's 0.25% p.a. increase in official interest rates.

Chief General Manager of Retail Banking, Greg Gillett, said the increases would be passed on to new and existing borrowers from 1 January 2004.

"This is consistent with the approach we took when rates were falling," he said.

Mr Gillett said Bendigo Bank would increase variable interest rates by 0.25% p.a. for home loans, business loans and credit cards effective from 1 January 2004.

Bendigo's residential variable home loan rate will increase from 6.85% p.a. to 7.10% p.a., adding around $7.50 per fortnightly repayments on a $100,000 mortgage (or around $16.50 to monthly repayments).
