Non-major tightens the screws on SMSF loans

AMP Bank

One of the major SMSF loan providers will change the maximum loan to value ratio for new SMSF loans to 50 per cent from 1 July.

AMP is changing the maximum loan to value ratio (LVR) for all new investor property loans, as reported by SMSF Adviser’s sister publication Mortgage Business.

The LVR percentage will be changed to 50 per cent and apply to all new loans with an investment property as a security and includes loans to SMSFs. The change will apply from 1 July for SMSF loans, which currently have an LVR of 70 per cent.

AMP Bank also announced that variable interest rates for new and existing investment property loans will increase by 35 basis points.

The change in interest rates will apply from 23 June 2017 for new customers and 26 June 2017 for existing customers. AMP confirmed that the variable rate change also includes SMSF loans.

AMP Bank group executive Sally Bruce said the measures are needed to ensure AMP operates within its regulatory obligations.

“We’re committed to managing our portfolio responsibly while balancing this with the interests of our customers,” she said.

“We are managing our loan book in a very active market and these changes follow recent shifts in competitor activity. We will continue to take the necessary steps for sound management of our regulatory requirements.”
