A major bank pulls back from sub 5% mortgage rate, ends Classic special

BNZ has withdrawn is 4.95% one year fixed mortgage rate available as part of its Classic product range.

The rate now reverts to 5.25% as a Standard product.

The change positions BNZ as the bank offering the highest one year mortgage rate.

BNZ introduced its 4.95% special rate on May 6, 2013.

Late last week, Kiwibank raised rates too, for its 4 and 5 year fixed rate products.
