Statement of Authorised Status

Certificate of Registration

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.

Full details can be obtained by downloading the ICCL Investor Guide.

Aspire Wealth Management is subject to and complies with the Consumer Protection Code, Minimum Competency Code and the Fitness and Probity Standards as laid down by the Central Bank of Ireland, details of which are available on the Central Bank website .

Aspire Wealth Management also holds Professional Indemnity Insurance to the value of €1,300,380 for individual claims and €1,924,560 in total as it is required to do under the European Union Insurance Mediation Directive (2002/92/EC).
