The bank’s chief executive, Steve James, said the marginal repricing reflects the changing market conditions for interest rates, both domestically and internationally.

Finally, ING DIRECT this week announced that it will increase the standard variable rate on two of its investor home loan products by 0.25 per cent from Tuesday, 4 April.

ING DIRECT's standard variable rate on the Orange Advantage home loan for investors will move to 5.42 per cent from next Tuesday, while the standard variable rate on the Mortgage Simplifier home loan for investors will be 5.32 per cent at the new rate.
