Banks ignore political pressure, lift rates

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

The major banks have come under fire as NAB stepped forward to hike its standard variable rate by 12 basis points.

Politicians on both sides have condemned the move as Australians come to terms with their Christmas spending spree.

Treasurer Wayne Swan cautioned the banks to be mindful of the financial strain borrowers are already under, while opposition Treasury spokesperson Malcolm Turnbull warned that banks need to think critically about the current lending environment.

With CBA also increasing its fixed rate mortgage by 30 basis points earlier this week it now looks like the other majors are likely to follow.
