No rate rise next week necessary

By webmaster

Aussie Home Loans founder John Symond has called on the Reserve Bank to refrain from increasing interest rates at its monthly meeting next Tuesday.

“There are many reasons why the Reserve Bank should not lift rates, perhaps the most important being the fact that the non-mining economy is slowing, with retail sales and consumer confidence down,” Mr Symond said.

“We are currently seeing a two-speed economy and many non-mining industry sectors are suffering.

“As a result, one or two more rate rises could well tip Australia into recession,” he said.

Mr Symond suggested property owners and credit card holders should investigate their own financial situation and seek to more closely manage their mortgages and credit cards to further shore up their financial security.

“Borrowers should investigate simple measures like making fortnightly and extra payments or even refinance to a mortgage more suited to their needs,” he said.
