ANZ Bank Cuts Standard Variable Home Loan Rate By 37 BPS

05/11/2012 | 01:23am US/Eastern

Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. (>> Australia and New Zealand Banking Group) Friday became the last of the nation's big four banks to pass on part of the Reserve Bank of Australia's 50 basis point cut last week.

ANZ said it will cut its standard variable home loan rate by 37 basis points to 7.05% from May 18. That's the equivalent of A$20 a week in interest repayments on an average A$280,000 mortgage, the bank said in a statement.

"We continue to work hard to ensure we are competitive despite sustained funding pressure driven by the high rates we are paying to our 2.9 million deposit customers," said ANZ's Australia chief executive Philip Chronican.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia (>> Commonwealth Bank of Australia), the nation's largest home lender, last week reduced the interest rate on its range of variable home loans by 40 basis points to 7.01% a year. National Australia Bank Ltd. (>> National Australia Bank Ltd.) cut its headline mortgage rate by 32 basis points to 6.99%--the lowest of the big four banks. Westpac Banking Corp. (>> Westpac Banking Corporation) reduced its headline rate by 37 basis points to 7.09%.

The central bank cut its cash rate by 50 basis points to 3.75% on May 1.
