La Trobe Financial deeply believe in investing in the future of the country and this sponsorship aligns La Trobe Financial with one of Australia’s leading basketball programs, providing exceptional opportunities for up and coming basketball talent.  Mr. O’Neill stated that it is important to support our future champions.  “The team show the qualities of determination, discipline and desire to succeed.  Attributes of true leadership skills and the elements of true champions, we are very proud to support the team in their journey.”

As one of Australia’s leading credit specialists with offices in Melbourne, Sydney and Shanghai, La Trobe Financial has a reputation for being the quiet achiever of the industry.  Established in 1952, and having served over 120,000 individual clients and managed $10 billion of investment mandates for some of Australia’s largest institutional and retail investors, La Trobe Financial continues to grow receiving over $80 million of loan applications each week.  With over 170 staff, La Trobe Financial offers Australia’s award-winning Credit Fund and one of Australia’s broadest range of innovative products including home loans, commercial loans, construction loans, and Self-Managed Super Fund loans just to name a few.

Jayco Rangers Head Coach Larissa Anderson said “La Trobe Financial’s continued sponsorship of our WNBL program is invaluable, Greg’s genuine passion for supporting Lauren and the team to succeed is fantastic.  Both Greg and La Trobe Financial take great pride investing in the future of our sport and we are extremely appreciative to have them part of our team. Their support allows us to continue to provide exceptional pathways for our up and coming stars of the future.”
