Executive General Manager Retail Customer Services, Nick Kennett said: "The Commonwealth Bank has taken the opportunity to offer these highly competitive fixed rates due to decreases in wholesale markets rates. These rates represent a great opportunity for customers to lock in their repayments at a time of economic uncertainty. And if taken as part of a ’split rate’ customers enjoy both security and flexibility".
