BOQ Specialist announces partnership with GPRA

Specialist bank continues to support early-career medical professionals

Sydney, 3 September 2015
 
BOQ Specialist today announced an exclusive partnership with the General Practice Registrars Australia (GPRA), with the bank the preferred financial services provider for GPRA members for the next three years. 

The BOQ Specialist team has over 20 years’ experience offering tailored financial services to Australia’s medical professional sector. The partnership allows the bank to closely support GPRA’s 21,000 members through the demanding stages of their early medical career.

“Our long history of working with medical students and graduates means we have a deep knowledge of the unique challenges they face and as such we are able to develop tailored personal and professional banking solutions to suit,” BOQ Specialist CEO Barry Lanesman said. 

BOQ Specialist assesses clients holistically and places value on their qualifications. Explaining this approach, Mr Lanesman said: “We are committed to supporting the next generation of doctors while they concentrate on building their skills, but haven’t yet had a chance to accumulate personal wealth.”

GPRA’s primary objective is to improve the health care of all Australians through excellence in education and training for the next generation of general practitioners.

Commenting on the partnership, GPRA CEO Sally Kincaid said: “BOQ Specialist’s strong track-record of working with doctors a real asset and something which our members can greatly benefit from.”

“For early-career doctors, having an expert banking partner that provides flexible financial solutions will allow them to focus on their professional development rather than financial stresses.” 

Through the partnership, GPRA members will be able to access a suite of specialist banking facilities and exclusive benefits, including 24 hour private client service, waiver or reduction on select fees and a choice of frequent flyer programs.
