Lending Rate Changes

From 1 November 2019 bcu will reduce residential and commercial lending rates from between 0.15% and 0.25%.

The table below sets out the rate reductions for each variable rate product:

Rate Reduction Product

-0.25%

  • Investment Standard Variable Rate
  • Investment Maximum Discount Variable Rate
  • Investment Line of Credit
  • Investment OMG

-0.16%

  • Owner Occupier Standard Variable Rate
  • Owner Occupier Maximum Discount Variable Rate
  • Owner Occupier Line of Credit

-0.15%

  • Owner Occupier OMG
  • Commercial Loans
  • Self Managed Super Fund Loans

 

The above changes will apply to both Principal and Interest and Interest Only loans.

This financial year, borrowers have seen material changes in their monthly repayments enabling them to pay down their loan faster or direct these savings to other areas of their personal budget. Whilst of course we would like to pass on the full benefit of this cut to all our members with loans, we also have to balance this with the needs of the significant number of members who have savings deposits with us, many of whom rely on these interest payments for their income.
