Michael first discovered the value of a dollar as a young boy when he went door to door in the caravan park where his family were holidaying to collect soft drink bottles (in those days you could get 5 cents back for each of them) and used the proceeds to buy watermelon!

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.

I believe their strengths are their expertise, ability to explain things clearly, friendliness and trustworthiness. I know they work very hard to keep up to date with what’s happening in the world also.
