The Rugby Union Players’ Association are delighted to announce that NAB Private have extended their partnership with RUPA, continuing an unbroken seven-year association as the Players’ Choice of Bank.
The partnership has seen NAB Private work with over 200 players on different methods for managing their money at the annual RUPA Induction Camp as well as providing tailored private banking services for professional players nation-wide.
NAB Private’s partnership with RUPA will continue to have a focus on ensuring players have priority access to NAB Private’s financial literacy services, a key pillar within Player Development Program, designed to allow them to better prepare for life outside of and after Rugby.
A further key highlight of the extension will see RUPA engage current and former players to work with NAB Private’s staff in Capability Sessions, drawing upon their experiences in the game and sharing high-performance and wellbeing philosophies which will enable NAB Private employees to continue to grow and ensure that they are best-positioned to fulfil their clients’ needs. NAB Private will also continue to present an award at the annual RUPA Awards Luncheon.
Prataal Raj, RUPA Chief Executive, said securing NAB Private’s ongoing support was a crucial retention target for the Association.
“NAB Private has been a wonderful supporter of Australia’s professional Rugby players since 2013, so in our minds ensuring we continued to build further on the outcomes achieved through the partnership was a priority heading into 2019,” Raj said.
“We value our relationship with Gary McMahon, Andrew Fotheringham and the NAB Private team, and look forward to continuing to provide impact for both our members and their staff.”
Gary McMahon, Managing Partner of NAB Private, said he was looking forward to continuing to work with Australia’s players and other partners within the RUPA network.
“We are very proud to continue our partnership with RUPA and look forward to providing our offering to its members and associated partners,” McMahon said.
“Having the opportunity to present valuable insights into personal financial management to new and existing players provides us with a unique opportunity to promote our services and products to players looking for assistance in establishing themselves financially.”
