How has CommBank responded to the November RBA rate hike?

With inflation still much too high, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has hit the cash rate with its thirteenth hike, hammering in another 0.25%. Official interest rates now sit at a lofty 4.35%.

Borrowers comparing home loans with the Big Four will be keen to know how these latest hikes affect the largest bank in Australia, Commonwealth Bank.

Over the last year, CBA has passed along every RBA decision in full to its customers (totalling 4.25% p.a. worth of increases since May 2022). 

What is CBA doing about rate hikes?

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

While borrowers have been squeezed the most by the rate hikes, savings accounts and term deposits at CBA have seen some attractive boosts, too.

CBA has made efforts to keep itself competitive for home loans, especially to refinancers with the launch of a new digital home loan, the immensely popular Unloan.

This largely fee-free, variable rate home loan shaves 0.01% p.a. off the interest rate every year for up to 30 years (T&Cs apply). It’s available to refinancers only with at least 80% LVR
