Billy Tomlin

Financial planner

At work

An English native, Billy came travelling to Australia in 2015 with the desire to put his degree learnings into practice, getting some work experience under his belt before ultimately returning to the UK. Billy has now made Australia his permanent home. He’s progressed through the ranks at bdhSterling, from Administration Assistant, to Paraplanner, and now Financial Planner – and he’s never looked back.

Billy and Ashleigh (and the UK office) worked tirelessly on my account with very pleasant communication throughout. The financial issues were resolved satisfactorily.I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of financial assistance and having a foot hold in the UK was paramount to my needs.

I have been impressed with bdhSterling service over a number of years. They assisted me in moving and consolidating UK pension funds into an Australian SMSF. Subsequently this has operated smoothly with sound investment advice and flexibility for me to manage some of the portfolio. Billy Tomlin has been an excellent advisor, supported by a good administration team and manager, Nick Bond.

He has been very professional and is very knowledgeable in his field of expertise. We would like to thank Billy for his ongoing assistance and I am now doing the transfer of my pension from Scotland, so we know we are in good hands. Billy is an asset to the bdhSterling team and we would not hesitate to recommend him to our family and friends.
