Matthew Ricker, newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of Australian Unity Bank, said the decision to make these changes was made after reviewing our current rates, balancing the needs of our home loan and deposit customers, and considering the broader market.

“Our home loan rates are very competitive and this increase comes off the back of historically low rates which have been this way for a long time. Our changes are in line with the RBA official cash rate change,” Mr Ricker said.

“The increased rates across term deposits is welcome news for deposit customers who have borne the brunt of falling interest rates for a long while.

“We encourage customers concerned about their interest rates and repayments to get in touch with our team as soon as possible for assistance.”
