Bobbe Duncombe Authorised Representative of
Fitzpatricks Private Wealth Pty Ltd
Many individuals today find that there is a lot of “noise” in their financial world, often leaving them unsure of how best to plan for the future. People may be concerned that the complexities of their financial situation have not been fully addressed or they may be unable to articulate their goals into a practical plan that will benefit them and their loved ones.
Bobbe offers her clients the ability to gain a sense of calm regarding their finances. Whilst challenging people to make the changes required to achieve their goals, she helps them fully understand their options so that they can make decisions with confidence. Providing exceptional ongoing service, Bobbe also empowers her clients with the flexibility to manage changes that happen along the way.
Using a holistic approach to financial advice, Bobbe spends time getting to know her clients and their individual situation. She works closely with them to create a strategy particular to their personal needs and will bring a team of professionals together to effectively implement specific parts of the life plan. Bobbe believes in building deep, long-term relationships with her clients and assists them in refining their financial plan over time as circumstances change.
Bobbe strives to achieve a healthy work-life balance for herself and her family and endeavours to make the same possible for all her clients.

We were fortunate that Bobbe took over our financial management and in the past three years under her guidance, our lives have changed. We have been able to undertake the projects we want to do, stop fulltime work, ensure regular getaways, and know we will be able to live comfortably on our savings for the term of our lives (even if that means getting a telegram from the Queen).
Aside from Bobbe being warm and friendly, understanding of our goals and incorporating them into our financial plan, most important is her expertise. Bobbe is abreast of industry information which ensures how we structure our finances to provide maximum benefits, deductions and long-term growth.
We had no idea of the financial opportunities available to us in regard to our superannuation and income structuring. Bobbe is the first financial planner who has been proactive for us. As well as achieving the goals we wanted, Bobbe has been able to do so much more with her knowledge of the industry that far surpassed our understanding. Her recommendations and what she achieved on our behalf exceeded our expectations. Bobbe also worked with our solicitor during the planning of our wills to ensure everything was covered.
We weren’t always convinced of the need for a financial planner, but since meeting and working with Bobbe, we wish we had found her earlier and we whole-heartedly recommend that other people seek Bobbe’s services sooner rather than later.
Chris and Helen Adams, Greenslopes
We’ve known Bobbe 4 or 5 years. We value Bobbe’s advice greatly, it is easy to follow and Bobbe is always thinking outside of the box to give us the best opportunity of growing our portfolio so we can enjoy a comfortable retirement.
Her use of plain English rather than financial jargon is great. And Bobbe makes us feel that she cares about us and our future. We never feel rushed and everything is always explained to our satisfaction.
Bobbe is our financial doctor, her check-ups keep our financial plan on track. She is genuine, very approachable and knowledgeable. Bobbe “gets” us and when you have that easy communication, everything is so much easier.
We are very happy with Bobbe and her advice. Bobbe is a pleasure to deal with and without hesitation we would recommend her services.
A & V Capone, Robina
We have known Bobbe for over 2 years now. Bobbe offers a most professional service with a warmth and enthusiasm that engenders trust and enables us to articulate what we need to do to achieve our goals in life.
Bobbe is a very skilled listener and helps us drill down so we can explore our options. We have never felt pushed into taking any particular action, but she has helped us understand what each option is about. This has built our confidence. We also enjoy Bobbe’s warmth and humour.
We would highly recommend Bobbe as a financial advisor. She knows her material, is a very good listener and creates the sense that she is working to achieve what is best for us.
Maria Wagner and Lindsay Gaffney, Mitcheltom
I would like to thank Bobbe and her team for making the whole process of personal finance so easy, and for taking the time to understand who we are as individual people with different needs and concerns, as well as a couple planning for their future. Its rare to find someone who listens.
Bobbe makes you feel special and important, her knowledge is amazing, and we trust her completely.
