Our Investment Planning Philosophy
At Coastal Advice Group, we are committed to developing tailored and consistent investment approaches, with proven wealth creation strategies and investment results. Our investment philosophy follows these core principles:
Risk + Return are Related
Investing means taking risks. Not investing means taking risks too. What’s important is taking risks that you can live with and that get you closer to your goals.
We Invest. We Don’t speculate.
Our approach is based on Nobel Prize-winning research. We use the data that this research was based on to give you the best chance of reaching your goals.
Diversification is Crucial
Spreading your investments across many different securities and multiple asset classes increases the chance of you having a successful investment journey.
Taxes + Costs Matter.
While you can’t control markets, you can control the costs of investing and the tax bills. That leaves more money in your pocket.
Understanding Behavior to Outcomes
Discipline is underrated in investment. If you stick to your long-term plan, you give yourself the best chance of achieving your goals.
Consider Your Impact.
You can do well and do good in the world. Ask us about aligning your investments with your values around environmental and social issues.
Our Financial Advisers are experienced in providing tailored investment strategies to clients from all stages of life with a wide range of needs, wants and goals. We will work with you to devise a wealth creation strategy with your financial goals in mind.
It’s worth considering all your investment options inside and outside of Superannuation, examining the benefits of repaying your mortgage sooner, investigating how you can invest for your children’s or grandchildren’s future, and planning what your next big ticket purchase will be.
Achieve your wealth creation goals with expert guidance from the Specialists!
When it comes to making those all-important decisions on where to invest, there are several key factors to take into consideration. These include tax implications, your risk tolerance and diversification. Coastal Advice Group can provide advice to you on all these aspects, taking into account both your current assets and those you would like to invest in the future.
Investing is a powerful wealth creation tool. A considered and well-researched strategy can give you the financial means to have choices in your life and choose your own path.
Our motto is, if you don’t understand, don’t invest!
Make your money work for you!
Here some are some strategies your Financial Adviser can incorporate into your Investment Portfolio and Wealth Creation Plan:
Direct Share Investing: buying shares in individual companies listed on the stock market. Our team can provide insights and advice on which shares to invest in, and how to manage your portfolio.
Borrowing to Invest Using the Equity Within Your Existing Assets: this investment strategy involves borrowing against the equity in your existing assets (such as your home) to invest in other assets. This can be a high-risk strategy as it involves taking on debt to invest in potentially volatile assets.
Invest in Managed Funds or Exchange Traded Fund (ETFs): invest in a range of funds, including equity, fixed income, and multi-asset funds. Managed funds are typically actively managed by a fund manager, while ETFs track an index or market and are passively managed.
Create a Regular Savings Plan: by setting aside a fixed amount of money on a regular basis (such as monthly) to invest in a particular asset or portfolio or start an emergency cash reserve. This can be a disciplined approach to building wealth over time.
Comparison of Loan Repayments v Super Contributions v Savings: involves comparing the benefits of making additional loan repayments on a mortgage, contributing to superannuation, or saving money in a high-interest savings account or investment portfolio. The goal is to determine which strategy will provide the best return on investment.
Develop a Spending Plan to Identify Surplus Cash: by tracking your income and expenses to identify areas where you can cut costs and increase savings. This can help you identify surplus cash that can be directed towards investments.
Superannuation Strategies: Superannuation strategies involve maximizing the tax benefits and investment opportunities offered by Australia’s superannuation system. This can include contributing to superannuation, selecting the right investment options, and planning for retirement.
Property Investment: involves purchasing real estate with the goal of generating income or capital gains. This can include purchasing a residential or commercial property, land, or a real estate investment trust (aka REIT). Please note that Financial Advisers cannot provide advice on direct property transactions.

The minimum investment required to start investing in Australia varies depending on the type of investment. For example, you can start investing in shares with as little as a few hundred dollars, while property investments typically require a larger initial investment.
