The summer rate war has kicked up a notch after two of the biggest lenders in the market announced sweeping cuts last week.

Trinity Financial product and communications manager Aaron Strutt says lenders are reassessing their product rates as they seek to hit end-of-year lending targets following an increase in rates earlier this year.

He says: “Many of the lenders increased their rates earlier in the year and they obviously think this is a good time to lower them again, particularly with so many borrowers sitting on standard variable rates. Lenders will also be looking at end of year targets and this may be a final bid to hit those in the final quarter.

“It’s good to see there is so much competition in the market and the lenders are fighting so hard to attract new customers.”
