Why Choose Us

A proud history

We’re proud of our reputation for working with our clients to find the best financial solutions. Founded in 2004 through the amalgamation of several firms with history going back over 50 years, our directors and staff have many years of experience in providing the best impartial advice to our clients.

Success through strength

We are one of Irelands largest indigenous and privately owned insurance brokerage, employing over 150 professionals in Dublin, Cork and Waterford, so our full range of personal lines and commercial insurance solutions is available to you on the best of terms.


As a nonaligned firm, our advice is unbiased towards product providers, so we are always working with your interest in mind, not theirs. The choice we provide therefore can’t be rivalled by direct providers, banks, tied agents or many other institutions that sell just their own product.

We don’t manufacture financial products, so you’ll always get an unbiased recommendation.

And because we don’t invest money ourselves or run our own funds, we have no vested interests. You’ll always get an unbiased recommendation on how and where you should invest yours.

Financial Planners

Because we always start our process with a financial planning perspective, our advice on solutions for you will always fit with your long term needs.

Qualified Financial Advisers

Our financial advisers are fully qualified in their area of expertise, with a continuous development and learning programme in place to ensure our knowledge and practices remain up to date.


We aim to deliver value for money for the services you will buy from us. You can choose to work with us on a fee basis or to have our costs covered by the product providers as a commission, or a mixture of both. We’re agnostic on how you pay us, but we will always agree and disclose the true costs of our work for you in advance.
