WESTPACTRUST CHANGES INTEREST RATES ON HOME LOANS
WestpacTrust is increasing its floating rate for home loans by 0.7% per annum to 8.8% per annum in response to increases in the Official Cash Rate of 0.75% by the Reserve Bank in the last month.
The new rate will be effective from 25 May 2000 for new customers.
WestpacTrust general manager retail Ross Aitken said: “The last two increases in the OCR have pushed up wholesale interest rates significantly in the last month. However, customers have a range of simple options that can significantly reduce the long term cost of their home loans, saving them up to 40% on their interest costs, which WestpacTrust is currently promoting.”
