Ethica’s Founder, Michael Goodwin, has spent thirty years in financial planning. Many of his clients have been with Ethica for over a decade; a testament to his integrity, ethics and financial acumen.

He began his career in financial planning more than 30 years ago. Michael lives and breathes it. As a leading Sunshine Coast financial advisor he has been handling the financial planning needs of clients across south east Queensland for almost two decades.

A Member of the Australian Institute of Management, Michael specialises in superannuation and self-managed super funds, investment management, and strategic advice for long-term wealth creation.

Michael loves nothing more than a get-together with good friends, good food and a nice glass of red … or two.
