NAB confirms MLC sale

NAB has confirmed it will exit its wealth management businesses operating under the MLC brands by the end of the 2019 calendar year.


In its half-year results this morning, NAB announced that it will divest its MLC business as part of a plan to "reshape" its wealth management businesses.

"This involves an intention to pursue an exit of the advice, platform & superannuation and asset management businesses, currently operating under the MLC and other brands," said NAB.

"Separation is targeted by the end of the 2019 calendar year, subject to market conditions and the required approvals."

NAB will retain its JBWere and nabtrade businesses.

The announcement confirms hints made by NAB chief customer officer, consumer and wealth, Andrew Hagger at the royal commission hearings last week.

The half-year results also revealed a $2.58 billion statutory net profit for the bank.
