1st April 2020 will bring with it the dawn, or the dusk of 'Independent Financial Advice' in Ireland. I really have no clue which way it will go! At least initially, finding an actual living, breathing and practicing 'Independent Financial Advisor' in Ireland may be like the proverbial hen's tooth. (Wouldn't that be a novel name for a Financial Advice firm - 'Hen's Tooth Independent Financial Advisors'!).
I hope it helps in some small way.
Paddy Delaney Informed Decisions
'Are Equities For The Scrap Heap'? I feel compelled to nail our colours to the mast at the outset. I am always open, and deliberately expose myself to contrary thinking, the fact remains that Equity investing has delivered the greatest outcomes for patient and long term investors. That fact will have come into question in people's minds in recent weeks, so I'm going to share with you in this short piece exactly where Equities are right now - and encourage you to decide for yourself.
What to do with my investments and Pensions in a declining Market? Absolutely Nothing. That is all.
Listen-on for a 'slight' elaboration!
I hope you are keeping well - that must remain a priority.
This week, following a recent conversation (there I go with 'conversations' again!), we share a detailed analysis of the Davy GPS Funds. You may be thinking of investing, or are already invested, via pensions or investments.
Either way, we share insights on what are they, what's in them, how they compare to their competitors, and how they have served investors that have entrusted their funds in them.
I hope it helps.
Warning....The value of your investments will rise and fall. You could get back less than you invest in any investment. But you knew all that! All info correct at time of analysis early March 2020.
