The variable home loan interest rate will decrease from 8.50% per annum to 8.25% per annum for new applications received from Thursday, 15 March 2001 and for existing customers from Monday, 9 April 2001.

* Four year fixed rate decreases from 7.60% per annum to 7.40% per
* Five year fixed rate decreases from 7.70% per annum to 7.50% per

ANZ Chief Economist, Bernard Hodgetts, says the reductions reflect the decline in wholesale interest rates over the past few weeks with short-term rates having fallen further on the back of the Reserve Bank's decision to reduce the OCR today. He says it is pleasing to be able to pass the benefits of these lower wholesale rates onto ANZ's customers.
