ANZ CEO Australia Phil Chronican said: “We recognise that it’s both in the interest of our customers and the interest of broader economy that we continue to absorb high funding costs. We will carry on doing all we can to keep consumer and small business lending rates as low as possible which is why we’ve decided to only pass on today’s official cash rate increase.”
ANZ has a number of options available to help customers manage their repayments including extending loan terms to maintain a customer’s existing repayment obligations.
Other options include switching to a fixed-rate loan to provide greater certainty on future repayments, or to an ANZ Simplicity PLUS home loan, with fewer features at a lower interest rate. Customers who would like assistance should visit any ANZ branch, log on to anz.com or contact ANZ on 13 13 14.
