Stockbroking & Wealth Management

  • Portfolio construction and management
  • Share trading ideas and strategies
  • Relative value arbitrage
  • Fixed income investing
  • IPOs

Financial Planning & Strategy

We are a full service advisory group, which means we offer much more than just buying and selling shares. 

We consult with you, and believe that it is essential that we understand your current position and objectives. We must understand your risk profile, as it is important we design a portfolio that should meet your objectives, while not taking on unnecessary risk. 

Our financial planners specialise in the following areas: 

Investment Philosophy

Our investment philosophy is based on research, quality investments, and cash flow.

We invest in companies that are well researched, using information provided by Ord Minnett’s team of experienced research professionals.

  • Decisions to invest are made only after we are satisfied that the asset has a sound balance sheet, prospects of growth in profitability, and good cash flow. We attempt to invest in companies that are trading well under a price that we consider ‘fair value’.
  •  We focus on cash flow and liquidity. We try to ensure that there is sufficient initial cash, plus income generated by your portfolio, to ensure you are never forced to sell assets at a time which may not be appropriate.

Ord Minnett Sunshine Coast recommendations are not influenced by product providers and our preference is to invest directly rather than through managed funds.

Our extensive experience in researching and managing financial assets enables us to provide advice without conflict or compromise.

The result is one of complete transparency of client holdings and a portfolio strategy specifically designed to meet the needs of our valued clients.
