The Reserve Bank of Australia has today kept the cash rate at 0.25% for the sixth straight meeting in a row.
The RBA will be closely monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 shutdown in Victoria and uncertainty surrounding the pace of a national recovery.
It has previously stated that it sees a cash rate of 0.25% as a floor but may need to consider the merits of a further reduction against other stimulus options, if signs of a recovery fail to emerge.
Rates are at a record low and lenders continue to offer very competitive rates. An AFG broker can answer your questions and look at your circumstances to make sure you’re prepared for what could be coming next. This could mean refinancing or approaching your lender for a better rate. Because an AFG broker does this type of work every day, and has a pretty good idea what lenders can do to win or keep your business.
