RaboDirect still leading in rates comparison

Tuesday, March 8th 2011, 12:14PM 2 Comments

The past week has seen major banks making cuts to their deposit rates in anticipation of a rate cut by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand this month.

The above graph shows the 12-month rate for a min $10,000 for each bank.

The cuts to the 12-month term deposit rate over the past week have been from 35 basis points through to as much as 60 basis points however RaboDirect, who have had the lead rate in this term for quite sometime, remained unchanged.

logging on to your web site, selecting News, there is a heading "Robobank still leading in rates comparison." It then gives a graph with Robobank showing 5.5% term deposit rate.
However the date of the item is 8 Mar 11.
Surely you should update your website to reflect the current situation/date!

his is way out of date and therefore totally irrelevant. Rabodirect's cuurent 12 month rate is 4.3% (standard interest), no compounding interest or PIE alternative. No better than any, and worse than some bank rates.
