Hello can you explain why you did not pass the full amount like the other banks?
What will the extra money you pocket from us used to improve?
bankwest is not one of the most competitive in the market anymore, well compared to the big 4 you are,but you are not a big 4.
So again why is the reasoning did not pass on the full rate. And what will your customer hard earn cash you are taking going to be spent On?
Does this also mean when rates go up will not be raising the full.amount??
