What Sets La Trobe Financial Apart?

Our People Make the Difference

We know it takes more than capital to build great companies – it takes great people.
We believe that when companies take care of their employees and the people in their communities, everyone benefits. La Trobe Financial’s guiding principle in all of our activities is to put “others before self.” We actively seek out to build teams of intelligent, collaborative, low-ego professionals.
Long experience teaches us that such teams deliver outsized results for the business, for our customers and for the community.

Our Values

Our philosophy “others before self” is a fundamental part of who we are and reflects the principles by which we conduct ourselves, shaping what we do and how we do it. Our values are embedded into the operations of our business as well as our underlying culture, and are part of the people hired and retained to serve our customers.

These are the values that have inspired our teams since we were founded in 1952 by Ray O’Neill with the steadfast belief that home ownership was the foundation of 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
