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.

Since our first contact in 2016, I have been very happy with bdhSterling’s services. Nick Bond advised on and managed the transfer of my UK pension funds to an Australian SMSF and its subsequent consolidation with another Australian pension fund. I was extremely satisfied with Nick’s advice at all stages of the process, and I continue to be satisfied with his on-going investment advice and management of my portfolio. I would highly recommend the quality of service at bdhSterling.

Nick Bond at bdhSterling has done a great job of helping me with the very complex process of transfer of my UK pension to a self managed fund in Australia. I can highly recommend bdhSterling for anyone looking to transfer their pension between the UK and Australia.
