Pension Freedom Receives Irish Pensions Award 2013
Gerard Keogh,Owner/Manager of Pension Freedom has been awarded an Irish Pensions Award for his work in the Financial Services Industry.
Irish Pensions Awards, in association with European Pensions, for the first time, have recognised the role played by the Financial Planner in the Irish Industry.
The winners were announced at a dazzling ceremony at Dublin’s Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, which welcomed hundreds of pension professionals from across the Irish Pensions Industry.
The judges believe that Gerard delivers exceptional service to his clients and displays a true understanding of the market’s needs given the current environment.
In 1992 Gerard joined Canada Life, working as a consultant/salesman, before branching out on his own. Over 20 years on, Gerard has built a wealth of experience in financial planning and now runs a boutique, fee-based, Financial Planning Practice.
Gerard says “all over Ireland today, Financial Advisers or Wealth Managers are not being truthful. Perhaps they are too embarrassed to call themselves salespeople. But that is what they are. It may not be their fault, it’s the industry. The problem is they only get paid when they sell a product or move an investment. Not for giving advice.
Financial Planning, in my view, has nothing to do with the sale of a financial product or investment.
True Financial Planning is a service that revolves around the client, helping them identify, achieve and maintain their desired Lifestyle without the fear of ever running out of money”.
