Advice For Living Pty Ltd

10/75 Main Hurstbridge Road,Diamond Creek, VIC, 3089

phone 03 8370 5307

Advice for Living is situated in the leafy green outer North Eastern suburb of Diamond Creek in Melbourne.  We are approximately 24 kilometres from Melbourne City Centre.  Easy access either by car or train with a station just a few minutes’ walk from us.  Located on the first floor at 10B/75 Main Hurstbridge Road in the quaint Diamond Creek shopping centre, there is plenty of parking available out the front of the building.  You will know when you have arrived as we are on brand with our colour scheme – purple!

If you find it difficult to walk up the stairs we can meet at one of the local cafés and address your financial future and concerns there, but if you enter our office then the offer of a cup of tea or coffee will be waiting for you.

If you’re looking for marble floors and mahogany boardroom tables, then we probably aren’t your people!  We focus on building close relationships with our clients, not big offices!

Our approach to investing is to provide simple, understandable, value for money, advice.  If we can’t explain a strategy or investment to you so that you can understand it, we won’t be putting you in it.

We believe that clients get the best long term results by investing in simple, low cost investment vehicles that have the correct risk profile for the client.  We don’t believe in constantly adjusting portfolios to chase last year’s best performer.  We specialise in strategies, not stock picking.

With our insurance recommendations, we aim to provide comprehensive cover at an affordable price.  We first look at recommending the most appropriate cover, then at making it affordable.  We want to know that when you need to make a claim there won’t be arguments about whether you are covered.

Our team

Andrew Cooper
Principal Financial Planner

Andrew is a person who has life experience with a range of roles in his time before finding his true passion in Financial Planning.  Andrew’s various careers has culminated into being able to specialise in developing solutions to our client’s personal “what if”situations – good and bad.  He works with our clients to assure their financial future and take away their concerns through a caring and personalised approach.  Andrew works with clients to develop a plan that will maximise their financial outcomes and minimise potential risks.

Advice For Living is excited to have recently joined Infocus in early December 2018.  Andrew has an Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning and a Bachelor's Degree from Melbourne University.  More importantly, Andrew's own financial journey has been anything but smooth.  He knows all too well how easily, and unexpectedly, things can go wrong.  Like many committed financial advisers, Andrew became an adviser after receiving some very bad planning advice, and having trouble finding someone to trust.  He is determined that will not happen to either our clients or potential clients.
