Bankwest has decided to up its variable mortgage rates.
Bankwest revealed that it will be lifting variable home loan interest rates by 18 basis points effective 17 November 2015.
Bankwest’s standard variable rate is now 5.65 per cent and investor variable rate is now 5.97 per cent.
The CBA-owned lender said its home loan variable interest rates remain some of the most competitive in the market.
The move by Bankwest follows yesterday’s 20-basis-point rate hike from ME.
All four major banks have raised their variable rates. Westpac moved first with a 20-basis-point rate hike announced on 14 October.
