Brett Handke
Adviser and Director

Brett is an experienced Financial Adviser who specialises in Wealth Creation, Risk Protection and Retirement Planning strategies.

Brett began his career in Financial Services in 2004 as a Paraplanner, which has given him in depth knowledge of financial planning principles and the steps needed to quickly and effectively implement his recommendations. Brett firmly believes that a strong client-adviser relationship is the key to devising a financial plan that suits the client’s objectives and ensures they achieve their goals.

Brett is a father of two children and is a passionate Crows fan. After completing a Bachelor in Computer and Information Science at the University of South Australia Brett decided a career in IT wasn’t for him and began looking at other career paths. While working in retail he began studying a Graduate Diploma of Applied Finance and Investment with FINSIA and soon after was offered a paraplanning role within a small financial planning practice.

After only a relatively short period in the industry Brett was approached by the current Directors of Finance and Insurance Brokers Australia to establish an in-house financial planning arm that could provide advice to their extensive client base, and with that, FIA Financial Planning was born.

Advice Philosophy

“Behavioural management is the most important thing that I can offer as an Adviser. In most cases it’s not the performance of the product that determines the client’s outcomes but their ability to stick to their long-term plan through the good times and the bad.”
