Westpac new and existing investment loans


Effective from 10 August 2015, the standard variable interest rate on Westpac residential investment property loans for new  customers will increase by 0.27%.


For existing customers the increase will be effective 25 September 2015. In addition, Westpac's fixed rates on residential investment property loans will increase by up to 0.30%, effective 4 August 2015.
