BoQ Buys Investec

Bank of Queensland (BOQ) has purchased Investec’s Professional Finance business – including its deposits business. The agreement follows the appointment of independent advisers by Investec to identify alternatives for the business late last year.

Head of Professional Finance, Barry Lanesman, said the agreement with BOQ provided an exciting opportunity to propel the business to the next phase of growth.

“The businesses are both aligned culturally and there are strong synergies in terms of our approach. By combining our strengths and adding scale we will be able to deliver an even stronger proposition for our clients whilst retaining our focus as specialists in the medical and dental space,” Mr Lanesman said. “We remain committed in this area and are able to do things which general financiers are unable to do. We’ve been doing it for 20-odd years, so we know this market in a deeper way than anyone else.”

The Professional Finance business has over 19,000 clients and a loan portfolio of US$2.2 billion. Over 80 per cent of current loans are for practice and personal finance to medical, dental and veterinary practitioners.

The agreement is subject to regulatory approval and will be finalised in coming months with the Professional Finance business to rebrand under the BOQ umbrella upon completion.
