  • I fixed just last week and BNZ's 7 year rate then was 6.79%, and it is now actually 8.09% so their rate has actually increased by a whopping 1.3%, not the 0.79% they claim.

    seven year rates are up 0.79 percent, to 7.99 percent.

            Pulling off myself = felt good.

                As an off shore observer the current rise in fixed term rates is way over due.... Last year I recall posting my opinion that NZ interest rates would rise for the currently experienced reasons.

                NZ seems to be fitting in with the more normal situation of Fixed rates being higher than floating rates.
                The mission of any business enterprise should include the aim to develop economic conditions rather than simply react to them.

                  PT posters of some persistence can delete or
                  edit their own posts. Newbies, (less than 10
                  or 20 posts - can't recall exactly), don't have
                  that privilege. I dimly recall that there may be
                  a time limit in which that discretion can be
                  exercised, too.

                  The PT Mod folks are reluctant to delete posts,
                  but if forumites break the forum rules, such posts
                  will disappear from sight. Most forumites get an
                  admonitory PM; the intractables usually don't.

                  Sometimes, such moderation will be the subject
                  of a post in the thread, so posters understand
                  why some bits have disappeared. Depends on
                  the severity and the dislocation impact.

                  We do have another life, somewhere . . . .

                  • a few pages back someone asked about deposit rates... a colleague of mine is getting in the 7's now for his $3mill spread around a number of banks.

                    Incidentally i have been asked by one of the big 4 to come and work for them to get term investments in - work involves calculating optimal rates and incentives as banks see offshore money becoming too expensive.... suggests rates on the way up ... fun times ahead!
                    two ears and just one mouth.. for good reason.

                    • You don't mention the term.

                      The local CU seems to be dragging the chain.
                      For TDs, their web site offers just:
                      5.25% p.a. for over $1,000 for 2 years.

                            Even 7.60% for 5 years is pretty good considering inflation will rear its ugly head in the medium term.

                                and the like, following the trend - not where I look.
