Brenton’s own financial education started early, talking through the concepts in the Australian Financial Review with a friendly commerce teacher. Today, listening and talking through concepts is exactly what Brenton does for his clients and in the media — including the Financial Review.
Consistently ranked one of Sydney’s top financial planners (Adviser Ratings), Brenton believes strongly in separating advice from commissions. This is why he has made it a cornerstone of Financial Spectrum that the firm rejects commissions.
Brenton holds a Bachelor of Commerce with a major in Accounting and Law, as well as an Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning. He is completing his Masters of Business Administration and is enrolled in the Fellow Chartered Financial Practitioner programme (FChFP). Brenton is a Senior Associate Member of FINSIA and member of the Association of Financial Advisers, Association of Financial Professionals and Responsible Investment Association of Australia. In addition, Brenton is an accredited trainer for financial planners and writes part of the Continuing Professional Development syllabus for Kaplan.
Outside of the office, Brenton spends time with his ever-expanding family, working on the farm or sailing the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
