How have CommBank, ANZ, NAB, and Westpac responded to the November RBA rate hike?

A man stand atop overlapping coloured circles, collage.

The Reserve Bank of Australia has delivered another aggressive 0.25% rate hike to the economy, bringing the official cash rate to 4.35%.

The Big Four banks had been predicting this decision. Inflation has been much too high, and economic cracks warning of a potential recession have started to show.  

Borrowers with the Big Four (CommBank, Westpac, ANZ, and NAB) have already borne the brunt of the RBA’s aggressive tightening cycle, with each bank passing along the hikes in full within days of the RBA’s decisions. Now, the average variable rate home loan with a Big Four bank sits at 7.21% p.a., according to Mozo data. However, the average variable rate across all banks is lower at 6.62% p.a. owner-occupiers. 

We will keep this page updated as more information follows.

Commonwealth Bank

  • CBA will pass on the RBA's November cash rate rise to customers by increasing their variable home loan rates by 0.25%, effective 17 November, 2023.   

ANZ

  • Announced that it will increase variable interest rates for home, residential investment and line of credit loans by 0.25% on the 17th of November 

Westpac

  • Westpac announced a hike of 0.25% for new and existing variable interest rate home loans on the 21st of November.

NAB

  • It announced an increase to its standard variable interest rate home loans by 0.25% on the 17th of November.

What an RBA rate hike means for the market

After keeping rates pegged at 0.10% since November 2020, the RBA abandoned its cautious stance in May 2022 and increased the cash rate to stamp out runaway inflation.

The hawkish round of hikes has pushed the cash rate into 'contractionary' territory, meaning all hikes from this point on will contract the economy by raising unemployment and reducing spending.

The decisions have already made massive ripples across home loans and other financial products, such as term deposits and savings accounts, as well as the falling housing market itself.

Now more than ever, comparing home loans and refinancing could be key for borrowers looking to save on their monthly mortgage repayments.
