AIB to increase rates, the official message

We have reviewed our Variable Home Mortgage interest rates which are currently the lowest in the market. Our current interest rates are unsustainable due to the fact the interest rates charged on mortgages do not cover the high cost of funding and the cost of servicing the accounts.
