In terms of planning for interest rate increases, there's a few things we have to put into place. The first thing is budgeting. So accelerating your repayments for non-deductible debt is a must. If you don't have any non-deductible debt and it is deductible, try to accelerate your payments into an offset account so that you can plan for that rainy day. It's very important. Things are really good at the moment, rates are low so you must plan for a rainy day. The second is interest rates are the lowest they have been, particularly fixed rates, in history. So planning to fix a portion of your loan should 100% be considered by everybody.
