Official interest rates have remained unchanged at 1.5 per cent during Philip Lowe’s first year as Reserve Bank of Australia governor. In contrast, the cash rate rose by 0.5 per cent during the first 12 months’ tenure of his predecessor, Glenn Stevens. Meanwhile, the next change in monetary policy is likely to be a rise in interest rates, although a number of economic indicators suggest that rates may stay on hold until late 2018.
