Australian credit specialist La Trobe Financial has unveiled a new online investment platform that will allow investors to have real time access to online investments from any location.
Dubbed La Trobe Direct, the platform will enable investors to get competitive investment rates, view investment transactions, set up a regular savings plan, view account balances and manage interest distribution flows, La Trobe Financial CIO Chris Andrews said.
The platform will allow investors to invest directly into La Trobe Financial’s Credit Fund.
“La Trobe Direct will give over 24,000 retail mum and dad members in our $1.23 billion Credit Fund better control in placing their investments with real time authentications and validations via mobile phones, reducing paperwork to effectively zero, and 24/7 access, anytime and anywhere,” Andrews said.
The platform will operate on all devices including mobile phones using different operating systems.
La Trobe Financial president and CEO Greg O’Neill said: “our Credit Fund’s objective is to protect investors’ capital and the La Trobe Direct online capability is true to this philosophy, as well as adding a further dimension to our offering which will attract different demographics to the Credit Fund moving forward.”
