The actual authorisations from the regulator can be viewed below. The Central Bank of Ireland is the successor to the “Financial Regulator” and the “Irish Financial Services Regulatory Authority” which were then the names for the formal regulator when our authorisations were issued historically.
These statements are the technical matters that we are required to impart to our clients before we give advice on any regulated financial service or product. What this means to our clients is that we are authorised to advise on all retail financial products, even those that we do not hold agencies for. From our clients’ perspective, they can be sure that they are getting the full extent of a huge body of experienced advice they need. This is unlike many other advisors that can only advise on products for which they hold agencies for and, as such, are unable to give broad based advice.
As part of our regulatory requirements we are members of the Investor Compensation Company Limited which entitles our clients to coverage under a regulatory scheme up to an amount of €20,000 in the event we were to go out of business and cannot return your investment instrument (more commonly referred to as company shares, investment based life assurance policies or tracker bonds) or money if it should not be invested on your behalf.
