Full list of July’s out-of-cycle rate changes

Adam Smith 5 July 2017

hand percent1The Reserve Bank's inaction hasn't stopped lenders from making moves.

The Reserve Bank chose to leave the official cash rate untouched in July. The result was not surprise, with all 34 experts in finder.com.au's Monthly RBA Survey correctly calling the rate hold. But lenders have continued to demonstrate their willingness to move outside of the RBA's official cash rate decisions.

Last month saw 11 lenders in finder.com.au's database make rate moves outside of the official RBA decision. We'll keep you updated this month as more rate changes begin to come through.
