Administrative history

The Trust & Agency Company of Australasia Limited was incorporated in London on 8 November 1860. It was founded by James Hora, a businessman who had been Registrar for Municipal Loans in the Victorian Treasury. The company was set up to invest British capital and meet a demand in Australia for longer term mortgage loans. By 1887 branches were established in New Zealand and Australia, and after 1908 in Argentina. From 1929 the company was run by Touche Ross & Co, a firm of accountants. The company in about 1960 disposed of all its properties and operated as a financial trust, with the last Argentinian branch closing in 1966. In 1974 it became a subsidiary of Touche Remnant & Co, a management company set up by Touche Ross & Co. The company was acquired by Reardon Smith Line Ltd in January 1978.
