  • reductions of up to 35 bps for SmartSaver IO loans, with rates starting from 3.69 per cent

Speaking to The Adviser, Adelaide Bank’s head of distribution, Amanda James, said the changes were part of the bank’s strategy to capitalise on an anticipated rise in demand for housing loans in the coming months.

“It’s something we’re constantly reviewing and saw the opportunity there to be able to provide lower rates to our brokers,” she said.

Earlier this week, Ms James revealed that the bank had been “gearing up” for home lending growth via the broker channel, by enhancing its service proposition.

As part of this, Ms James said the bank has expanded its third-party distribution team to improve efficiencies in the home loan application process.

“[We’ve been] working hard with our assessment teams to ensure that brokers are getting that consistent experience,” she said.

“We’ve resourced [our team] for the volumes we’re hoping to get so there’s not that [processing] delay that you sometimes see.”
