Contact: Tony Sarai


The cost of hiring a financial advisor will vary depending on what you want them to do; if they are providing complete holistic financial plans or just advice about one goal/situation then prices may change accordingly (but usually there is an upfront fee).

For example the Financial Planning Association (FPA) reports that average set-up costs come out at around $3,300, while annual service fees are in the $4-$5k range. Financial planners can have different fee structures, however, so be sure to discuss fees up front.

The majority of the best financial planners on the Gold Coast are based in the Southern Suburbs of Varsity Lakes, Robina, Mermaid Beach and Palm Beach.  However, there are a number of financial planners who operate out of offices in other suburbs such as Surfers Paradise, Sanctuary Cove, Isle of Capri and Runaway Bay.

However, more and more people are using virtual appointments, so even if you can’t find a financial advisor who works for your schedule and location it may be worth reaching out to them anyway.

We have reviewed all of the financial advisors on the Gold Coast to compile a list of the best financial planners. To determine our top ten advisors, we assessed their qualifications, how long they have been advising, testimonials, and their track record of reviews on Google and Facebook. Only those that have consistent positive feedback have been included on our list of best financial planners on the Gold Coast.

It’s important to find the right financial advisor for you, but it can be a complicated process as there are many different types of financial planners. If you are looking for a financial planner on the Gold Coast, here are some things you might want to consider.

First, what qualifications and accreditations do they have? This doesn’t necessarily make them the best financial planner for you, but at least you know that they’ve done the proper tests and registrations.

Second, what type of clients do they have and do they have any specialisations? This can help you determine if they have the relevant experience and expertise with your type of situation.

Finally, how is their communication? You need to know that you can have a free line of communication with them and that they will listen to your concerns and answer your questions in a timely manner. Ultimately, you need to be comfortable with your financial advisor.
