Why is the Bank increasing Home Loan interest rates when the Reserve Bank has not made any announcements on interest rates?

As a mutual bank we operate in a highly competitive home loan market and are impacted by the cost of funds (including member deposits) and other market conditions to finance our members’ credit needs. 

We regularly review our interest rates to ensure they reflect current market conditions. From time to time we adjust our pricing to continue to operate sustainably and competitively while servicing our members’ saving and lending requirements. 

Will my repayments increase?

We will be contacting existing home loan borrowers who are impacted by the interest rate change from 10 May 2017. We will advise you of your new interest rate and if there is a change to your minimum repayment. If your new minimum repayment increases, it will be automatically updated.

How do I get more information?

You can visit any one of our branches, send us an email to enquiry@tmbank.com.au or call us on 13 12 21.
