Who we are

Founded by Maurice Riordan, we are a team of creative and passionate Qualified Financial Advisers who bring a real human, purposeful view to how we engage with our clients. Our main objective is to listen and to understand your circumstances so we can take all the aspects of your life into account when working with you to establish a financial plan.

What We Offer

Solutions to help you achieve your financial objectives are available. We’ll create a strategy that is tailored to your specific needs, from protection for the things you’ve already earned to planning for the ones yet to come.

Protecting your family if you die

We consider how your family will manage financially after you pass on. From day-to-day living to long-term planning for your loved ones' future.

Reassurance during a Serious Illness

We consider how you would handle if you became seriously ill. What alternatives are available to ensure that you can cover unforeseen expenditures?

Security if you cant work

We consider your job and what would happen to your finances if you were unable to work. How are you going to continue to pay your rent or mortgage if you can no longer work?

Protecting your Mortgage

If you die, most lenders demand Mortgage Protection. If you pass away, your mortgage will be canceled. We can assist you in acquiring this protection as well as the finest mortgage rates possible.

Protecting your Business

We pay attention to your company's situation, structure, and reliance on key personnel. We'll recommend the best way to prevent illness or death of important people.

Helping you save for your future

We examine your present and future goals. For example, what activities must you complete right now in order to pay for your children's education up to the third level?

Planning your Retirement

We listen to understand what sort of lifestyle you desire in retirement (how far away that may be), then collaborate to develop a strategy for attaining it.

Making my money work harder

With rates as they are now, you're actually losing money because inflation is outpacing the return you earn. We assist you in exploring additional alternatives so that you can get a greater return.
