Understanding rate changes

  • Why are interest rates changing?

    When the Reserve Bank Board decides that a change in monetary policy should occur, it specifies a new target for the cash rate. A decision to ease policy is reflected in a new lower target for the cash rate, while a decision to tighten policy is reflected in a higher target. 

    View the latest statements by the Reserve Bank on monetary policy decisions.

  • Why is CommBank passing on the rate changes? 

    Raising interest rates makes borrowing money more expensive. When the RBA increases interest rates, it impacts the amount it costs banks to lend to customers. This increased cost is then factored into the interest rates charged on products.
