The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is pleased to announce leading wealth management company, Nedbank Private Wealth, as the new sponsor of its on-board lounges for 2013 and 2014.

Nedbank Private Wealth, headquartered in Douglas, is a trusted brand across the UK, Channel Islands, UAE and South Africa, with a long and well-respected heritage. It will sponsor the Premium and Executive Lounges on board both Manannan and Ben-my-Chree, where passengers can enjoy a wide range of facilities and relax in comfortable tabled and lounge seating areas.

The Executive Lounges are available to members of the Steam Packet Company’s Executive Club, while the Premium Lounges are available to all travellers who want to upgrade at the time of making their booking. The sponsorship package includes Nedbank Private Wealth branding within the lounges, along with the logo appearing on the back of Executive Club membership cards.

Steam Packet Marketing Manager, Renée Caley, said: ‘We are delighted that Nedbank Private Wealth has offered its support for our Premium and Executive Lounges for the next two years. The lounges are consistently popular and offer our regular passengers a range of benefits including upgraded seating, complimentary refreshments, newspapers and magazines, plus complimentary Wi-Fi.’

Cathy Cowin, Senior Marketing Executive at Nedbank Private Wealth, added: ‘We are pleased to take up this opportunity to promote Nedbank Private Wealth following our rebrand in late 2012. Our client service approach to wealth management is to make banking and investment as seamless as possible for the client, which is why this sponsorship fits so well with our culture. The lounges make crossings as comfortable, enjoyable and effortless as possible for passengers and this offering resonates with our own at Nedbank Private Wealth.’
