Over the last 35 years, Coastal Capital Group has had the honor of helping hundreds of individuals, families, business owners, and institutions work toward financial independence. In doing so we observed a common occurrence: Many Financial Advisors overlook the most basic building blocks necessary to support a strong financial foundation for their clients.
We believe there's a better way.
We believe a strong financial foundation starts with the ability to manage your daily finances with purpose and discipline. Our process begins by helping you focus on items that you can control and can have a great impact on your success. At Coastal, we aspire to help you form healthy financial behaviors that eventually become enduring habits.
We teach you how to do it.
Our passion for financial planning centers around you. Coastal exists to help everyone we work with achieve financial independence, the way you define it. Whether it’s attaining a certain number, a set of goals or peace of mind, we aim to help you achieve what’s important to you, based on your priorities – not ours.
We nurture what matters to you.
