La Trobe Financial

Founded in 1952, La Trobe Financial is one of Australia’s leading non bank Credit Specialists with over 65 years’ experience managing over $13 billion of retail and institutional investments. 

How it all began
Founded by Ray O’Neill in 1952, who held the belief that home ownership was the foundation of all financial independence. “The opportunity to acquire your own home is a central tenet of our economic freedom and a measure of our success as a country” (RK O’Neill 1982). Sixty-five years later, our cause has never changed and remains the cornerstone of all employee training. It’s through this belief in homeownership that La Trobe Financial is now one of Australia’s leading non bank credit specialist & funds managers.

An insight into Ray’s approach can be found in his book “Job Fever – Breaking the Job Shackle”, his personal journey from wage earner to financial independence written when he was 78 years of age.
