"Coast" to financial security

A rich life, without deprivation

Does trying to plan for retirement feel like an absolute nightmare? We feel you.

Luckily, it doesn’t have to be a lifelong challenge like most financial experts lead you to believe. Instead, you can coast to financial independence not early — without depriving yourself of fun and freedom along the way.

CoastFI requires front-loading your investments when you're young, so they'll grow to a portfolio that ensures a secure retirement, even if you never add another dime. If this sounds good to be true, we promise it's not!

This popular investment strategy is known as CoastFIRE, but we like to call it CoastFINE - for financial independence, not early.

We created the CoastFINE webinar, where we’ll teach you everything you need to plan a rich life now and in the future.

I've been following Bridget and Alyssa on Social Media for a few months and it has changed my life. WHen they announced the Coast Fine webinar, I knew I had to attend. The webinar was so detailed and so well explained. For someone just starting to learn about Personal Finance and trying to figure out retirement, the value of it and the amount of information given out was incredible. Highly recommend!

Not as behind than I thought

Alex Lucas

Clear and straight forward teaching. Math is not quite my forte but I was able to calculate my COAST FIRE number- which is TOTALLY do-able!

FAQ

  • What age is this for?

    We want to help everyone on their wealth building journey, but CoastFI works best if you have many years to invest. We recommend this course to people under the age of 45.

  • What investments do I need to start?

    The more investments you're starting with, the easier your journey to CoastFI will be. However, if you're under the age of 30, even starting from $0 means you will likely be able to achieve CoastFI. If you're starting after 30, we recommend you have some savings and investments already started!
