New member benefits as IPA partners with non-major bank
The Institute of Public Accountants has announced a partnership with a non-major bank as it seeks to boost member benefits in the home loan rates and mortgage advice space.
The partnership with St.George, inclusive of St.George Bank, Bank of Melbourne, and BankSA, will provide IPA members access to “competitive” home loan rates and mortgage advice.
“We are delighted to form an alliance with such strong and reputable brands in the banking sector,” said IPA chief executive, Andrew Conway.
“Our members can access very competitive home loans or refer clients seeking home loans and mortgage advice to any of the three banks.
“This is a great advantage for our members and their small business clients in particular.”
St.George’s head of home lending, Gavan Thompson, welcomed the partnership and said that all of the brands were excited to be aligned with the IPA.
“We feel that our brands fit well with the IPA, particularly with their strong service delivery and community focus,” said Mr Thompson.
“Accountants are vital as trusted advisers to their clients and we look forward to being of assistance to them with any home lending needs.”
The IPA has been looking to improve its suite of member benefits in recent times, including the partnership with Qantas late last year.
