When managing your money, one of the biggest problems isn’t a lack of information but information overload. This can lead to ‘paralysis by analysis’. You know your dreams but don’t know how to achieve them! Don’t become disheartened or overwhelmed with the ‘how’. What’s important is you really understand your ‘why’.

The road to success starts by setting clear, strong goals. Don’t be afraid to reach for the stars; if you can dream it, you can do it.

Harvard did a study of goals and planning and what they found is that the 3% of their MBA graduates who set the goals were worth ten times the amount of the 97% added together.

So, if you think setting goals isn’t important, chances are, you will be like the other 97% in the study. We want to help you be in the 3%.

Contrary to popular belief, the need for a Gold Coast financial advisor extends beyond the wealthy. Have you ever wondered how the affluent achieved their success? They were once like you, with dreams and a desire for a comfortable retirement. What set them apart was their proactive decision to seek financial advice early on, paving the way for their prosperity.

No matter where you are in your financial journey, consulting a financial advisor is always a wise move. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has never been a more opportune time to seek guidance from a trusted Gold Coast financial advisor. The current landscape of uncertainty has led Australians to prioritize their financial well-being, resulting in a significant surge in demand for professional advice, as highlighted in the ‘Investment Trends 2020 Financial Advice Report’.

As Loong Choi, Senior Analyst at Investment Trends, states, “Against a backdrop of economic uncertainty and volatile markets, a record number of non-advised Australians realise they need professional financial advice. Among these potential advised clients, the pandemic has been a major catalyst, with 44% saying the COVID-19 situation had increased their likelihood of seeking advice.

At Centaur Financial Services, we believe that pivotal life events altering your circumstances are the ideal moments to reach out. The value of expert guidance on your path to financial security and success should never be underestimated.

Consider consulting a financial advisor during important milestones such as:

  • Getting engaged, married or divorced
  • Planning for or having a baby
  • Getting your first job
  • Buying a house or investing
  • Changing jobs or careers
  • Starting or selling a business
  • Coming into some money (inheritance, lotto win etc.)
  • Planning for retirement
  • Planning for your estate

Take control of your financial future with Centaur and experience the benefits of expert advice tailored to your unique circumstances.

No two Gold Coast financial advisors are the same, so finding a trustworthy advisor that meets your expectations is important. You should expect nothing but a high level of service, open communication, and complete transparency from your financial advisor.

We are biased, but the answer is yes!

Additional studies by Vanguard and Russell Investments found that a good financial advisor can increase investor returns by 3-3.75%, respectively.
