Ryan Hinchliffe

Associate Financial Planner

At work

Ryan joined our Perth office as the review administrator before taking a paraplanning role on in October 2018. A year later he took on a lead role within the paraplanning team, and in July 2020 he transitioned to a client-facing role as an associate adviser, where he helps give clients clarity of their financial future, as well as taking the stress off their shoulders.

After graduating from high school in 2011, Ryan went to study a double degree in Statistics and Finance at university. After some time in this course, he found a job as a paraplanner at a boutique financial planning firm and found finance was his passion. He subsequently altered his course and graduated with a Bachelors of Commerce in Economics and Finance. He also gained his Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning in 2017.

Ryan plays an active role in the bdhSterling investment committee, where he and other members combine their knowledge to work out the most effective ways of investing clients’ money.

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.

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.
