La Trobe extends partnership with NBL


By Mina Martin

La Trobe Financial, an alternative asset manager with $18 billion in assets under management, has extended its longstanding partnership with the Hungry Jack’s National Basketball League (NBL) for another year.

La Trobe Financial has played a crucial role in the competition’s resurgence on the Australian, New Zealand, and global sporting landscape, having been a significant and valued partner of the NBL since 2006.

“Staying by the NBL’s side highlights the unwavering support, commitment, and trust La Trobe Financial has in the league; these are all traits of La Trobe Financial and why it has stood the test of time for more than 70 years,” NBL CEO David Stevenson said.  

“The NBL’s growth has been well publicised, and La Trobe Financial has been there every step of the way. We look forward to further strengthening our fantastic relationship and we thank CEO, Chris Andrews (pictured above left), and the entire team for their wonderful support.”

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,” said Larry Kestelman (pictured above right), NBL executive chairman and owner. “We look forward to what promises to be a successful season together.”

Andrews added that the company was delighted to expand its relationship with a league that shares it passion for bringing people together.

“As a company that has thrived for more than seven decades, La Trobe Financial is proud to support the NBL’s growth and contribute to the success of basketball in Australia, New Zealand and globally,” Andrews said. “We express our gratitude to Larry Kestelman, David Stevenson, and the wider NBL team for their great achievement in growing the league to date and look forward to continuing this journey together.”

The 2023/24 Hungry Jack’s NBL Season will commence on Sept. 28, when Melbourne United hosts the South East Melbourne Phoenix at John Cain Arena.
