    I know BoQ doing this now. A few other small shops may also do it.

    Personally their service is terrible.

    As above. They also have a three year IO term max, shoddy service - really not that flexible if you have any intention of running a debt recycling strategy on your PPOR debt.

    Hi in what way is the service bad? I just submitted a refinance (preliminary) application to them for $1.75m / 85% without LMI (they won't do 90% no LMI unlike CBA) I/O (but only 3 years) 3.99% variable. No issues so far .. The "premier relationship manager" seems to ok at this stage of the application process

    Does anyone know if HSBC are lending to investors at all these days?

    There's quite a few lenders that can do 3.99% for owner occupied properties.

    Saw this when I logged on to internet banking

    "
    To assist us in managing our regulatory obligations to keep investor home loan growth below 10% per annum, new investor home loan lending with HSBC is currently reserved for existing HSBC customers* only. This restriction applies to investor home loan lending for new-to-bank and HSBC Credit Card only customers, until further notice.

    Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your Relationship Manager or any of our staff members.

    * existing customers are defined as those with an existing retail bank lending product (mortgage), or in the absence of this, currently hold a deposit account with HSBC that was opened prior to the 1st January 2015 (Credit Card customers excluded)."
