Want to know more about the Gateway 100% Offset Account?
By linking an Offset Account to your Green Home Loan, the balance in your Offset Account will offset against the balance of your home loan, reducing the interest you’ll pay and potentially shortening the term of your home loan. Having your salary deposited directly into your Offset Account is a great way to make your money work harder for you. Any funds, no matter how small, helps to reduce the interest you pay on your loan.
A 100% Offset Account comes without account keeping or service fees, whilst still giving you the flexibility of 24/7 access to your funds when you need them with a Gateway Visa Eco Debit Card.
