As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation continues to evolve, I thought it timely to reassure all AWA Alliance Bank’s members by informing you of the steps we are taking to ensure the health and wellbeing of our members and employees. 

As a response to the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) lowering the cash rate by 0.25% last Tuesday 10th March, AWA will also be reducing interest rates by the full 0.25%. Effective 1 April 2020 our new Owner Occupied Principal & Interest Mortgage Loan rate will be 2.99% pa. Since 1 July 2019, you have received the full reduction of 1.00% from the RBA. We will continue to make efforts like this to better your financial wellbeing. 

We are doing everything possible to keep our staff and members safe and well in our environment. We have implemented additional hygiene measures and will continue to monitor the situation and revise our plans as necessary should the need arise. Members can still bank with us in branch and remotely should they wish.

We’re sure you are aware that the Reserve Bank of Australia has implemented three reductions in the Official Interest Rate since June 2019 totalling 0.75%.  Whilst the major banks and many others have only passed on a proportion of these reductions, at AWA we always aim to do the best that we can manage for our members.

On the 18th of October AWA celebrated 50 years of operations. The event provided an opportunity to thank all Staff, Directors and Members for their on-going and past efforts throughout their history with a celebration at GMHBA Stadium.
