RBA call to reduce credit rates

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has called out the big banks for not reducing credit card interest rates in line with lower cash rates and reduced funding costs.


RBA probed over interest rates

While credit card cash rates are low, interest rates remain high, raising questions on whether Australia's big four banks are “gouging” consumers.


RBA cuts interest rate to record low

Interest rates at record low

Australia gets new money

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has been working for the last five years to create new banknotes. These will replace the Australian currency currently in circulation. Coins will not be affected, but the new banknotes are supposed to have a more “youthful” look.


The future of banking

People power

Interest rates are on the rise and the big four banks are taking no prisoners. Depending on which financial institution you bank with, your rate could have increased by as much as 10 basis points in the last week. This is despite the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) maintaining the cash rate at its last meeting.
