Financial Planning Manager (Australia)
Brenton is responsible for leading the Australian financial planning team to deliver top quality advice and service to our clients.
A key part of his role is helping to make sure the team are able to meet our client’s needs, as well as invest in their own success by helping to develop and grow their individual careers as advisers.
Prior to bdh, Brenton spent over 20 years in the financial services profession. The last 17 years he was with ANZ Bank, in ANZ’s Private Banking & Advice business. During this time he worked in client advising, quality coaching and compliance as well as time spent managing the audit function across the business. More recently he has led the WA based advisor team with coaching, development and guidance around client engagement, advice strategies and helping meet client and business needs.
Away from the office, Brenton enjoys anything related to motorsports, being outdoors and spending time with friends and family, particularly he loves being able to get down to Logue Brook dam.
