“La Trobe Financial has been with us through each stage of our growth over the years. To have them beside us for another season will provide significant benefits for both organisations,” NBL Executive Chairman and Owner, Larry Kestelman, said.
“We look forward to what promises to be a successful season together.” La Trobe Financial is Australia’s leading Alternative Asset Manager, with $18 billion in assets under management.
