Cash rate unchanged at 1.5% for the 27th consecutive time

 In Home Loans & Lifestyle, Industry News, Learn

As financial markets digest the findings of the Banking Royal Commission, the Reserve Bank of Australia has made its first rate announcement for 2019. The RBA has decided to leave the official cash rate unchanged at 1.5% for the 27th consecutive time.

The RBA continues to balance the worrying parts of the economy – inflation dipping below its target range of 2-3%, falling house prices, a borrowing squeeze in response to the Royal Commission, slow wages growth and negative consumer and small business sentiment with the more positive aspects of strong infrastructure spending, increased export earnings and stable employment figures.

With lenders continuing to review rates independently of the RBA, it is important to review your lending options regularly to ensure they remain the most suitable for your situation. There may be different rates available from our wide panel of lenders and an AFG broker is always available to ensure you have the right financial solution for your current and future circumstances.
