What our clients say

Owen McNamara August 2017

“ Derek helped me understand the redundancy process and actually managed to get me additional €10,000 tax free from my redundancy lump sum which I was unaware I could get.”

“I'd highly recommend the team at Financial Architects. I've been happily dealing with Derek for over a decade now - sound man, sound advice! Always helpful, and available if needed. I've had various policies through Derek, all of which have been very beneficial, along with insightful/profitable pension advice! “


Leonard Murtagh June 2020

“Great company, Financial Architects have provided me with excellent financial advice. Derek took the hassle away from moving a pension and offered reliable trustworthy advice based on what was applicable and important to me. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Financial Architects for anyone seeking professional financial advice.”


Catherine Buckley July 2020

I had my first meeting today with Derek to look at consolidating several pensions and get a rough idea of my financial future based on these. At least, that's what I thought was going to happen. Instead, we considered every possible variation of future events and the financial outcome that would result. I know what can happen when I retire and before I retire and early retirement. Lifestyle expectations were covered. It was a thorough and very informative analysis of my financial life - past, present and future. This analysis was followed by great advice in layman's terms.  I would recommend this for everybody. A really worthwhile exercise, particularly for those of us who like to bury our heads in the sand when it comes to major financial decisions and planning.
Fantastic work. I'm just sorry I didn't do it years ago.”

Michael Tracy Jan 2020

I decided to use Financial Architects when I retired in January as I was exasperated and very frustrated with the service being provided by the Pension advisors working for the Company Pension scheme of my employer. Having engaged with Financial Architects I began to see some surety and structure regarding my pension and I was given solid dates and time frames as to how thing would happen, this advice and service was worlds apart from what I was receiving from my employers Pension advisors. I got exactly as promised and in the time frame as advised to me, I also saw tangible results in a short period of time from invested funds as advised by Financial Architects, I'm more than happy to recommend Financial Architects to deal with matters pertaining to pensions and investments.
