Robert McKelvie

Investment Lending Manager

Robert leverages over three decades of banking experience to support senior brokers, crafting tailored lending strategies for clients.

When away from the office, he enjoys family time with his daughter and perfecting his golf swing, recognised with the prestigious Westpac Alfred Davidson Award in 2017.

We highly recommend ALIC, they make you feel like you are dealing with friends rather than being treated like a client. If we could give 10 stars, we would.

Thank you for providing exceptional service.

Robert McKelvie

Investment Lending Manager

As an investment lending manager, Robert McKelvie helps ALIC’s senior brokers engage with clients, liaise with lenders, and prepare loan applications.

With more than three decades of experience in the banking sector, Robert has developed a deep understanding of residential lending. He began his financial career in 1989, joining Bank of Melbourne in 2013 as a business manager. In 2018, he transitioned to a role as a business banking manager, before joining Westpac as a senior business banking manager in 2020.

Robert entered his current role at ALIC in 2023, where he supports the company’s investment lending managers. His responsibilities include developing client lending strategies and overseeing each client’s journey from first meeting to settlement.

Outside of ALIC’s Melbourne office, Robert spends time with his daughter or on the golf course (where you can find him practicing for a second hole-in-one).

In 2017, Robert was awarded the Westpac Alfred Davidson Award, an honour reserved for Westpac Group’s top 1% of employees.

“You get one first impression, so make it count. That’s how I approach mortgage broking and in life generally.

When I first meet a client, I make sure they understand it’s all about them – their objectives, their finances, and their future. And I uphold that positive first impression throughout their lending journey.

Utmost professionalism. Fierce client centrism. That’s how I’d define my philosophy at ALIC.”
