Members with loans affected by these changes will receive correspondence confirming the change and how it impacts them.

General Manager - Banking, Tony Brown, provided some insight into the decision.

“as the market has been indicating, there has been consistent upward pressure on funding costs over the recent past and as a result Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has moved their variable rate loan rates. These changes have resulted in a subsequent review by SERVICE ONE Mutual Limited, and as a result, it has been decided to move variable rate SERVICE ONE Alliance Bank loans by 10 basis points,” Mr Brown said.

The variable loan rate increase equates to approximately an additional $20 in monthly loan repayments for a loan of $350k over 25 years.
