Paraplanning Manager

At work

Pia leads the Paraplanning team for bdhSterling Australia. She has a passion for sound financial planning that is up-close and personal. Tracing back to her childhood, Pia watched her mother juggle three jobs to support two children, a mortgage and a terminally ill husband with little insurance.

After running her own private practice, Pia was recruited as a Senior Financial Planner to work with the high net wealth clients of a large banking corporation. She was further promoted to a national coaching role, which focused on the training of financial advisers, to deliver client-centric advice.

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.

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.
