Community CPS Australia Group cuts interest rate
One of the country’s largest and most influential credit unions, Community CPS Australia, today announced it will reduce its standard variable interest rate to 6.84 per cent, effective from Tuesday, 15 May.
Community CPS Chief Executive Officer, Robert Keogh, said the reduction meant that the credit union’s standard variable home loan rate continues to be a minimum of 0.15 per cent lower than the best on offer from the big four banks.
“As a mutually owned organisation we exist for the benefit of our members and reducing our rate is just part of providing them with the best possible products and a quality relationship,” Mr Keogh said.
“Following the 30 basis point rate cut our members will save around $58 per month on a mortgage of $300,000, a significant saving for Australian families.
