In Australia, interest rates decisions are taken by the Reserve Bank of Australia's Board. The official interest rate is the cash rate. The cash rate is the rate charged on overnight loans between financial intermediaries, is determined in the money market as a result of the interaction of demand for and supply of overnight funds.

Latest Updates

The Reserve Bank of Australia lowered its cash rate by 25 bps to a new record low of 0.75 percent during its September meeting, the third rate cut this year, aiming to support employment and income growth and to provide greater confidence that inflation will be consistent with the medium-term target. Policymakers also signalled the need for an extended period of low interest rates, while saying the central bank is prepared to ease monetary policy further if needed.
