Fletcher & Butler Financial Planning

Silver
29 Yrs Experience
Bendigo, VIC 3550
I started in the financial planning industry back in 1993, as a Life Agent with MLC. After 5 years I sold my St. Arnaud based business and moved to Bendigo, working as a Financial Planner at Bendigo Bank for around 13 years. During this time I mentored and supervised other financial planners and attained CFP® status in 2005. In 2012, I decided to go out on my own and set up Fletcher & Butler Financial Planning, to be able to offer a more comprehensive and personalised service. Prior to my Financial Planning career, I spent most of my adult life in various roles in the agricultural industry - so if you’re a farmer and want someone who understands your business, I'm better placed than most to help with your financial planning needs!

"We were very impressed with John's knowledge, his ability to explain things and his friendly, relaxed nature. He was extremely thorough in all the necessary planning and we certainly walked away feeling very confident about our investments. Without any hesitation, I would recommend John to anybody who has had little experience with financial planning. No regrets at all. In a nutshell, just a really nice bloke who knows his stuff."

"John has a good no-nonsense approach. He does not try to 'big note' himself which, in my experience, many financial advisers do. He is tremendously helpful with forms - which I hate. And most of all, I trust him."
