La Trobe Financial appoints VP

Credit specialist La Trobe Financial has announced the appointment of Martin Barry as vice president, head of institutional mandates and head of the Sydney office.

Mr Barry graduated from Imperial College London and commenced his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers as an actuary before joining the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) in 2001 within the London-based Global Securitisation team.

As RBS expanded, Mr Barry had postings to Tokyo and Sydney and delivered numerous successful securitisation transactions in the region.

More recently he consulted for the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ in Sydney, before accepting the new vice president position at La Trobe Financial.

“La Trobe Financial has achieved significant growth over the years covering $10 billion of funds under management,” Mr Barry said.

“The company now boasts the largest retail mortgage funds operation in Australia, a growing China operation showing significant opportunities for expansion and a broad recognition as an innovator in specialist mortgage products with, for example, our new parent-to-child (P2CTM) offering,” he said.

“La Trobe Financial is a wonderful business with strong financials, market presence and leadership. One of the reasons I admire La Trobe Financial is because it is strongly focused on clients, staff and developing executive talent to help lead the company forward.”

La Trobe’s chief executive, Greg O’Neill, said that Mr Barry brings a plethora of experience to the company and will make a significant contribution.

“He will play a major role in helping grow our Sydney office as well as our international operations. We welcome Martin and look forward to working with him on developing our business further,” he said.
