After months of preparation, the Bank of Melbourne will officially open its doors in Victoria.
From today, St George branches and corporate centres in Victoria will become Bank of Melbourne while over the next few weeks, all the St George ATMs will be transitioned to the new brand.
Speaking to The Adviser, St George’s general manager of intermediary distribution Steven Heavey said on top of the rebranding, the Bank of Melbourne would also increase its business development team.
“In addition, there is also a new broker website, partners.bankofmelbourne.com.au,” Mr Heavey said.
“From our new site, Victorian brokers can lodge Bank of Melbourne home loans for their customers. There is no change to the way brokers log in, and passwords and user IDs are the same.
"There is no change to the way Victorian brokers submit their loans or the loan approval process," Mr Heavey said.
Mr Heavey reassured brokers that it would be "business as usual for brokers and St George Bank".
"Brokers can continue to offer the same products to customers and there is no change to the processing of home loans.”
Brokers lodging commercial loans, can access the new Bank of Melbourne website at bankofmelbourne.com.au/corporate-business, to find all the forms, documents, tools and information they need.
These are located in the Intermediary Business section (in the same place as they are now on the St George site). The Intermediary Business login and passwords are the same.
“We’re taking care of everything to ensure a smooth transition from St George to Bank of Melbourne,” Mr Heavey said.
