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). Over 65 years later, our cause has never changed and remains the cornerstone of all employee training. It's through this belief in home ownership that La Trobe Financial is now Australia's premium non-bank, wealth manager & credit specialists.

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.
