I went through Roundabout travel and I was unable to match their quote myself (and I tried hard!). They specialise in RTW fares including the Finnair one.
I opted for a Lufthansa ticket - Brisbane-Sydney-Delhi-Frankfurt-Lisbon-Frankfurt-Sao Paulo and then Buenos Aires-Auckland-Brisbane. Cost about $6.5k, though I think South America raises the cost. It also wasn't the *ideal* itinerary for me as I would have liked to fly directly from Lisbon to Belem in Brazil with TAP (a Lufthansa partner) but this wasn't allowed on the fare (though both my intra-European flights are on TAP). So I had to tack on my own fare from SÃ£o Paulo to Belem. I also added flights to Suriname, Mauritania and Kyrgyzstan which has allowed me to hit up lots of countries for under $10k.
They're complex tickets to book, so I recommend the agent. At least get a quote and try to match it yourself.
