The change will bring the bank’s standard variable rate to 9.47 per cent, and in line with NAB and ANZ -- who both announced interest rate rises over the weekend.

In justifying the rate rise, Westpac group executive of consumer financial services Peter Clare, said: “Operating as we do in the global economy, long-term funding costs remain at record levels and our average cost of funds continues to increase.”
