Who is Coastal Financial & Insurance Services

Our aim is to build and maintain long-term relationships with our clients and to assist them through all stages of their lives. Purchasing a home, starting a business, marriage, children, education expenses, investing, superannuation, retirement. These are just a few examples of some of the major decisions that people are confronted with and the team at Coastal is committed to assisting clients in dealing with such issues.

Many people make the mistake of thinking that they don’t have enough money or assets to see a financial planner when nothing could be further from the truth. It’s not about how much you have to start with – it’s about where you want to be and how we can help get you there. Taking that first step and seeing a financial planner could be one of the best investments you make.

Our motto is “building and protecting what’s important to you”. So no matter what your goals are, we are here to help you achieve them.

Our goal is simple. We want to be the first choice for locals when it comes to choosing a financial planner.
