Bankwest, which is owned by CBA, the nation's largest lender, has raised its standard variable rates.

It did so for principal and interest and interest-only home buyers.

The bank is raising rates by 15 basis points.

It puts the new standard variable rate at 5.57% for a owner-occupier principal and interest borrower and 5.92% for an interest-only.

For investors the new rates will be 6.22% and 6.47%.

Rowan Munchenberg, the Bankwest managing director, blamed the increases on a "sustained increase" in wholesale funding costs. 

"They have risen significantly since the beginning of the year," Munchenberg told Fairfax Media.
