Due to increased funding costs and the decision by the Reserve Bank to increase the cash rate, ING DIRECT will increase variable mortgage interest rates by 0.30% p.a. effective from 13 April 2010.
ING DIRECT’s most popular product, Mortgage Simplifier, will remain competitive and increase to 6.49% p.a.
ING DIRECT will continue to consider the impact on its home loan customers when managing difficult funding conditions.
Existing residential variable rate customers will receive a letter advising them of the rate change in late April 2010 and full details will also be published in national newspapers on 13 April 2010.
