Review - What RateCity says

The Macquarie Credit Union Home Equity Loan’s main attraction is its payment flexibility, with the option to adopt a weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment schedule and the option to pay off the loan earlier if desired.

However, its rates for owner-occupier and investor are very high. It also has a number of fee categories and it has no attached offset account. It is not suitable for borrowers with no existing assets.
