Is your pension with a previous employer?
You control your pension and not your ex-employer
You could access this pension from age 50
How much is this going to cost me?
Here’s the good news, we are paid by the pension providers; you do not have to write a cheque!
With all pensions there is a management fee associated with managing the fund. This is deducted from the respective pension at source.
You have moved on, but has your pension?
Busy professionals across Ireland are changing jobs but often leave their pension behind.
We specialise in helping our clients take back control of their pension savings from their ex-employers.

A word from our clients
“I was very taken that Will took such care to ensure that my retirement needs would be met under any new plan we made, and took a very holistic view of my plans and incorporated them into the strategy fo my future planning- it was not just about me in this moment, but “future me” in a responsible and ethical way.
The communication and feedback in terms of customer service and follow up is impeccable. Fast and efficient and all three of the people I’ve dealt with in this company have been friendly, spoke plain English and made sure I was happy and comfortable with everything before we moved forward.
Pension and retirement planning stopped being words on a page or a nag in the back in my head, and became a partnership with people who had the skills and knowledge to work with my wishes to make them a reality.”
