Why are ACA rates moving by more than the RBA?

The official cash rate which is managed by the RBA is only one of a number of components which are considered when pricing our products.

Other influences on the returns we are able to offer depositors include items such as the 90 day bank bill swap rate (BBSW). Changes in these other factors have put additional pressure on our ability to provide returns to depositors.

The pricing of our deposit products is something we carefully consider and we believe our rates remain competitive and at a premium above the official cash rate.
