86 400 launches new tiered variable rates to help borrowers save

By Niko Iliakis ·

Australian neobank 86 400 has announced it will be offering tiered variable rates for home loan customers, giving those with a lower LVR (Loan to Value Ratio) the chance to access cheaper rates.

The new pricing system means borrowers with a deposit of at least 40% of a property’s value can pay as little as 2.59% p.a. (2.87% p.a. comparison rate*). According to 86 400’s lending product lead, Melissa Christy, this will go a long way towards freeing up customers’ finances.

"We built 86 400 to help Australians take control of their money. By reducing the variable loan rates for customers with more equity in their property, we are helping our customers do more with their money,” she said.

The new rates came into effect 20 August 2020, and will be available to all customers, including existing ones. The tiers and accompanying rates for owner occupiers making principal and interest repayments are listed below:

• LVR ≤ 80%: 2.74% p.a. (3.02% p.a. comparison rate*)
• LVR ≤ 70%: 2.64% p.a. (2.92% p.a. comparison rate*)
• LVR ≤ 60%: 2.59% p.a. (2.87% p.a. comparison rate*)

Investors will also be able to take advantage of the new pricing system, with rates as low as 2.89% p.a. (3.17% p.a. comparison rate*) available. Below are the price bands for investors making principal and interest repayments:

• LVR ≤ 80%: 3.09% p.a. (3.36% p.a. comparison rate*)
• LVR ≤ 70%: 2.99% p.a. (3.27% p.a. comparison rate*)
• LVR ≤ 60%: 2.89% p.a. (3.17% p.a. comparison rate*)

While rate discounts by LVR are nothing new, they’ve become more popular in recent months as lenders look to peel away low-risk refinancers from competitors. A lower LVR means borrowers are less likely to enter negative equity territory and be forced to sell during a downturn. 

86 400 is also offering $2,000 cashback on settlement for eligible borrowers. The offer is available on applications of $250,000 or more, so long as they are received by 31 August 2020 and settled by 31 October 2020.
