Whether you are saving to accumulate a deposit for your first home, applying for a mortgage or trading up, we can help (35 second read)

You will need to plan your finances to ensure you can fund your house purchase and related costs. This is the first thing you have to consider, accumulating enough resources to fund your input to the property purchase, plus stamp duty, legal expenses and any other costs you will incur. Managing your finances in the lead up to your mortgage application in a manner that well help you to obtain mortgage approval and then obtaining mortgage approval.

You’ll be subject to the Central Bank’s restrictions on mortgage lending, but remember that you will also be subject to the your mortgage lenders internal credit criteria. A key part to obtaining mortgage approval is managing your finances correctly in the lead up and submitting a good application. With first hand experience of mortgage underwriting we can advise you what you need to do and avoid doing in this regard.

Of course it’s not just a case of borrowing as much as you can. You need to structure your finances in a way that fits in with your other objectives. You also need to fund for your retirement, pay for children’s education and achieve a good work life balance. We can help you to decide how much to allocate to each purpose. Many people who are at a later stage in the financial lifecycle, who have substantial deposits and are trading up, want advice on the optimum balance between borrowing and investing. We can assist with this also.

The most effective and efficient way to ensure that you achieve all of your financial and life objectives is to retain a Certified Financial Planner to construct a Financial Plan for you. Click here to book a place on a webinar to learn more about Lifestyle Financial Planning.

About Financial Planning

Most of the important life choices which we make, about issues such as career, family planning, housing and leisure are based at least in part on our assessment of our ability to meet the costs involved. As such, how well we manage our money is an important determinant of our futures. Even so, many people don’t have any formal plan for this. With so many moving parts to the process, a plan is critical to success.

We can build your Holistic Financial Plan or assist you with a particular aspect of your finances such as housing.

Why We Changed Our Business To Focus On Financial Planning

Having been involved in Financial Services for over 25 years our experience is that most people feel that they aren’t well served by the traditional financial advice model. Commission based sales creates a huge conflict of interest as in order for a financial adviser to be paid for his work he must sell you a financial product.

Many people who approach us for financial planning services tell us that they feel that what they have been getting is sales, and they want advice.

Our most successful clients use Financial Planning to manage their finances and accumulate wealth. Studies have shown that people who engage in Financial Planning are more on track with their financial affairs and have higher net worths.

Who Is Financial Planning Suitable For?

  • You own your own home or are planning to purchase a home soon
  • You have surplus income (although you may well feel that it is not being used optimally)
  • You may have financial products (pensions, life assurance, investments etc) but they were sold to you by someone who had a target to achieve
  • You are interested in developing a cohesive plan to achieve your financial objectives

I would highly recommend Eoghan to anyone looking for expert financial advice. From my first meeting with Eoghan, the level of service has been exceptional. He's extremely knowledgeable, very patient and explains things in way that you can easily understand. I'm delighted with the product he found for me and I hope to be a client of his for years to come.

Gareth M21/9/2020

Excellent service provided by Eoghan since I took the decision to take my pension out of the Banks and use a financial advisor to help me maximise incomes from the market. He is always attentive and quick to offer current valuable advice. Happy to recommend Eoghan to anyone interested in getting sound financial advice.

Niall Hearn2/3/2020

For pensions and advice, Eoghan is an expert, professional and thorough. He has a knack for explaining and summarising this important and complex subject in layman's terms. This helps enormously, making you comfortable that you are making the right financial choices for you. He is also a patient and nice guy to deal with.

Bill Glennon18/9/2019

As well as advising me on the performance of my existing personal pension & arranging life insurance policies, Eoghan is also now overseeing our business needs. So far, he has implemented an employee pension scheme & is advising on corporate co-director & key-person insurance. I have found him to be exceptionally knowledgeable and honest and wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to others for either business or personal pensions/investments etc.

Dawn Richardson10/10/2019

We first met when i was made redundant and needed help with moving my pension. Since then, he has advised me on my life insurance policy for my mortgage and helped me to get a much better deal than I had with my bank. He is extremely helpful and I can ask him anything without feeling like it's a stupid question!
