The move comes ahead of today's inflation data from the ABS, which generally weighs heavily on the RBA's monetary policy decision - next held on Tuesday.

NAB's rate increases were largely in-line with increases from the other major banks, focusing on fixed-rate home loans with terms between two and five years.

While a large swathe of home loans had rates changed, some of the more noteworthy ones included:

  • Choice Package Fixed 2 Years: 10 basis point increase to 2.09% p.a. (4.00% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Choice Package Fixed 5 Years: 20 basis point increase to 2.99% p.a. (3.95% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Investor Tailored Fixed 3 Years: 10 basis point increase to 2.64% p.a. (4.59% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Investor Tailored Fixed 5 Years: 15 basis point increase to 3.19% p.a. (4.46% p.a. comparison rate*)

That said, various one year fixed-rate home loans were decreased by between 10 and 15 basis points, similar to what ANZ did last week.

NAB's Choice Package fixed for one year for owner occupiers was reduced by 10 basis points, which brings it back down below the 2% threshold. 

Variable loans get a haircut

NAB has continued building on the emerging theme where fixed loans increase while variable rates decrease.

The major bank decreased its base variable rates for owner occupiers by between 5 and 40 basis points as special offers.

For borrowers up to 80% LVR, the rate was decreased by 40 basis points to 2.29% p.a. (2.33% p.a. comparison rate*).

Borrowers over 80% LVR saw a rate decrease of 5 basis points to 2.99% p.a. (3.03% p.a. comparison rate*).

AMP also cuts variable rates

On Wednesday AMP also cut variable home loan rates for investors borrowing more than $500,000 by up to 40 basis points. 

  • Professional Package P&I 60%: 40 basis point decrease to 2.34% p.a. (2.76% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Professional Package IO 60%: 30 basis point decrease to 2.79% p.a. (2.87% p.a. comparison rate*)

Investors with smaller deposits or equity, up to 80% LVR, also saw rate decreases by between 35 and 40 basis points.

Investment construction loans also got a haircut for those borrowing more than $500,000:

  • Professional Package 60%: 30 basis point decrease to 2.79% p.a. (2.79% p.a. comparison rate*)
  • Professional Package 80%: 40 basis point decrease to 2.79% p.a. (3.62% p.a. comparison rate*)
