Brenton Ritchie

Financial Planning Manager (Australia)

At work

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.

Although I have a financial services background, transferring pension assets from the UK to Australia is specialist work, and needs doing 100% right first time.The BDH guys over-delivered with a lot of knowledge, experience and professionalism, which in turn gave me the peace of mind I needed throughout this process.I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them. BDH exceeded my own high expectations.

They were so responsive and answered all my (sometimes silly) questions. When the pandemic struck and lockdown ensued, they were business as usual and my payment was issued right in the middle of all of that. I have nothing but positives.
Wendy Stone
A service second to none. Friendly, professional and client focused at all times, and more than willing to go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction.

I would highly recommend bdhSterling for high quality and professional advice. They advised me in the UK and Australia and were invaluable.

For the last three years, I have used bdhSterling to look after my UK pension while waiting to transfer it to Australia. I have found the investment recommendations and advice to be excellent. Communication is effective and financial transactions are undertaken efficiently. Definitely a five-star company.

Been with them since 1999 and am yet to find anyone more knowledgeable and helpful. Returns have always been ahead of market averages at a very reasonable price. Fair and open with great staff.
