Choosing a Financial Advisor in Ireland is not an easy task! There are many different types of advisors, operating in different ways, being remunerated differently, and all delivering different services. 

In this piece, I will share with you;

  • How to recognise the different types of financial advisors in Ireland
  • Why Financial Advisors are comparable to prostitutes, escorts and spouses!
  • How different types of advisors are paid for what they do
  • Why all Financial Advisors are not the same

I hope it helps.
