Macquarie has joined the big four and St George Bank in increasing their variable rates for owner-occupiers and investors.

With a 20 basis points rise, Macquarie’s standard variable rate will be 5.70% for home owners, and 5.97% for investors.

St George opted for a 15bp rise, which will bring their owner-occupied variable rate to 5.69% and investment rate to 5.94%.

Their rate increases come into effect November 20.

Macquarie operates on the same APRA controlled internal risk-weighting model as Australia’s four major banks.
