BOQ to cut Standard Variable Rate by 62 Points

Friday, 07/11/2008

Bank of Queensland has today announced it will reduce its standard variable interest rate by 0.62%. 

Group Executive, People and Corporate Services, Daniel Musson, said the Bank was keen to do everything it could to offer customers some relief, despite the ongoing volatility in world markets.  

"We value our customers and believe that by reducing our rates by 0.62% we are balancing the interests of our customers with that of our shareholders, given the very high wholesale and offshore funding costs we continue to face.” 

BOQ’s new standard variable home loan rate of 7.74% p.a. is effective from 17 November.
