Reflecting on CBA’s reductions, Canstar’s finance analyst, Steve Mickenbecker, observed: “Commonwealth Bank’s reductions ranging up to [80 bps] confirm just how competitive the market is for new lending.

“The larger cuts also demonstrate the current favourable conditions for long-term funding.”

Earlier this month, Westpac also slashed rates across its offerings by up to 70 bps.

Westpac’s subsidiaries (Bank of Melbourne, BankSA, and St George Bank) have also reduced rates by up to 65 bps, effective from 22 July.
