2023 Interest Rate Update

As has been widely reported, the Reserve Bank of Australia increased the official cash rate by 25bps at its November meeting.

The updated interest rates for AIDF Lending and Investment rates are available here.

Please note the new rates for both, loans and investments will apply from the 1 December 2023.

The AIDF rates remain commercially attractive compared to those offered within the broader banking sector. In addition, no account keeping or transaction fees apply to our savings and investments products. The AIDF Board continues to monitor RBA and market movements closely.

Please do not hesitate to contact Adam, Leila or Sarah at the AIDF directly if you have any questions about these interest rate adjustments.
