Bill Hackett Senior Financial Planner

Bill has been in the financial services industry since 1981 and has been practicing as a fully qualified Financial Planner since 1997. He joins us with his existing clients, some of which have been clients for more than 20 years.

Bill speaks "Superannuation" fluently and enjoys helping people understand what they have and what options best suit them. Clients feel reassured that he has assisted them to get "on track" to meet their retirement goals and that he is there for them in good times and bad.

Bill believes that there is no such thing as a "silly question", especially when it is about YOUR money, and he is not afraid to ask awkward questions as he feels that it is best to ask them now and not in a hospital or at a funeral.

Karl Hombergen Senior Financial Planner

Karl spent 10 years with the Royal Australian Navy before completing a degree in commerce at Murdoch University in 2001 and received two Vice Chancellor awards for academic excellence. While studying, Karl worked for an accounting firm specialising in business services and gained practical experience in tax and accounting matters. After completing further studies with the Securities Institute in 2004, Karl began working as a financial planner with that same firm. Eager to specialise in individual wealth management, he spent the next three years acquiring unique insights and cultivating significant experience in the financial planning landscape with other private and publicly listed firms.

Seeking a challenge and with a desire to carve out a space in the market for clients who are looking to make sense of often-conflicting and confusing advice about how best to build a solid financial foundation, Karl began working as a sole trader in 2008 -- right in the middle of the Global Financial Crisis. With a genuine belief that surviving the tough times only sets one up for prosperous times Karl has steadily grown his business. In 2017, Karl acquired the financial planning clients of an East Perth Accounting firm and continued to grow his business. He has now joined our team here at Future Wealth Planners.

With an understanding built from his own experience of what is required to stay financially afloat during unforgiving times, an ability to explain the need for strategic future planning with the use of a postal stamp, and a penchant for cutting through unnecessary jargon, Karl aims to provide clients with a wealth management service that puts their financial goals within reach.

Karl is based in the city at Ground Floor, 197 Adelaide Terrace, PERTH WA 6000.

Karl is authorised to provide advice on the financial strategies and products stated in this Financial Services Guide.
