Media release: BankVic lowers rate on fixed home loans

Wednesday 25 February 2015

Following BankVic’s announcement earlier this month of rate cuts to variable home loans, BankVic will lower its fixed rate home loans again.

BankVic will reduce its range of fixed rate home loans, maintaining a significant discount to the fixed rate loan options compared to all major banks.

This will bring BankVic’s 1 year interest rate to 4.50%pa, 3 year interest rate to 4.64%pa, 4 year interest rate to 4.74%pa, 5 year interest rate to 4.84%pa. Any new BankVic fixed rate home loan will benefit from the lower rates.

BankVic CEO, Stephen Capello said “in a competitive market we are pleased to be able to continue to pass on savings to our members in the form of interest rate reductions. As a 100% member-owned bank, our members are our first priority and this provides them with a great opportunity to lock in rates at historically low levels.”
