For 2018’s first announcement RBA has opted to leave the official cash rate on hold at 1.5%

 In Home Loans & Lifestyle

With the new year underway, we’ve come to the first rate news for 2018. I’d like to share today’s rate announcement and the thoughts on why the Reserve Bank of Australia has made this decision.

In its first meeting of the year, the Reserve Bank of Australia decided to once again leave the official cash rate unchanged at 1.5%. The last rate move was in August 2016.

With inflation remaining well constrained, rates appear to be firmly on hold until at least late in the year.

Even when rates are unchanged, the role of your broker remains the same. There may be different rates available from our lenders, so your broker is always on hand to ensure you have the right financial solution for your current circumstances.

If you’d like to have a chat about what today’s news means for you and your finances, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with an AFG broker.
