At MyWealthManagement we understand the profound financial repercussions an unexpected serious illness, injury, or a premature death can have on a household or business. Every day, Irish families face these unforeseen challenges, and the impact can be both substantial and enduring.

In the realm of financial planning, protection always takes center stage. It is the linchpin that ensures, in practical terms, that your family is equipped with sufficient resources to sustain their lifestyle should the worst occur.

A well-structured protection plan not only shields your loved ones and valued possessions but also serves as a cornerstone for your peace of mind. Knowing that you have taken proactive steps to fortify your financial defences underscores the importance of protecting what truly matters.

While protection products are key to providing financial security, a truly comprehensive protection plan goes beyond this; it encompasses the proactive measure of establishing a robust emergency fund. Holding an emergency fund equivalent to at least 3-6 months of expenses is an integral part of this strategy. This fund acts as a financial buffer, providing added reassurance that you are well-prepared to weather unforeseen circumstances. Our financial planners will work with you to identify what is the most suitable level of cover and how much of an emergency fund you require.

Take the necessary steps today to fortify your financial well-being and secure the peace of mind you deserve by completing our financial review form.

What Our Clients Say

With little to no knowledge of the options available for managing or maximising the potential of my old company pension schemes, Wealth Manager Stephen O’Driscoll walked me through my options, provided a generous amount of reading material to gain a better understanding, and discussed the pros and cons in detail. With his help we were able to identify suitable funds for my risk appetite, and for my long term financial planning objectives. By transferring my old schemes to a Personal Retirement Bond I now can avail of earlier access to my pension from age 50 instead of 65. Stephen also helped me in setting up a regular monthly savings plan to assist with my long term goals, and help my funds keep pace with inflation. I would be delighted to refer any friend or colleague to MyWealthManagement, or to anyone looking for financial planning advice or Wealth Management advice.

We met Stephen O’Driscoll in MyWealthManagement to set up a pension scheme for our management team ahead of auto-enrolment coming into force and we had a great experience. No jargon, simple English and he explained our options very well. I would recommend any business owners who are unsure of their options to get in touch if you want honest, straightforward advice.

Team Serve Limited
Event Management Cork

I met Stephen O’Driscoll to complete a financial planning consultation in 2023. I had several different pension arrangements with a few different providers. Stephen walked me through the options for my old pensions and helped draw down my tax free lump sum as soon as I passed my 60th birthday. He helped reduce my annual management charges and get access to funds with a suitable risk level for me and my goals. I was happy with the service and would recommend Stephen and MyWealthManagement to anyone approaching retirement to do an independent review of their pensions.

Kevin O'Neill
Accounting and Tax Advisor

Myself and my husband met Stephen O’Driscoll in 2023 to do a full financial planning consultation. After doing a full financial review Stephen was able to advise us on the best options for some property we owned and identified that my old occupational pension scheme charges and performance were not where they should be. Stephen highlighted the different options for my existing scheme, he helped me to find a new more suitable provider at great charges and told me that in this new arrangement I can access my pension money from age 50 if I wanted to. Stephen also set us up with a regular monthly savings plan to fund for the future in an account that will help my funds work harder for me and hopefully earn a great return over time. I would happily recommend Stephen and the team in the South Mall to anyone looking to review their finances.

Niamh Sammon
Operations Manager - Urban Green Private

I met Stephen in the MyWealthManagement office on the South Mall in Cork in July 2023 to review my old pension schemes. He did a full review of fund choice, performance and scheme charges. By doing a review of all the providers on the market Stephen was able to find me an option which had better performance over time and significantly lower charges than my previous supplier. Stephen was also able to assist me with the setup of a regular monthly savings plan to save for the future and for children’s future education costs. I would be happy to recommend MyWealthManagement to a friend or colleague who wants financial planning or Wealth Management advice.

Pat Fitzpatrick
Author and Comedian

Having left my old employment in 2023 I was unsure of what my options for my occupational pension scheme were and was concerned about leaving it in the hands of my previous employer. Stephen O’Driscoll, one of the Wealth Managers, was able to explain to me the different options in a simple way and was able to place my funds in a scheme where I could take a large lump sum tax free from the age of 50. He also set up a regular monthly savings plan for me that will help me earn a return over time better than what I could get in the banks in order to protect my funds from inflation. I have recommended Stephen and MyWealthManagement to a few friends and family members as its well worth doing

Karen Lehane
R&D Technician - Pepsi

Stephen O’Driscoll guided me through the options for my old occupational pension scheme, helped me to identify suitable funds for my risk profile and investment objectives and also enabled me to avail of access to my pension pot from as early as age 50! In addition Stephen assisted me with the setup of a regular monthly savings plan that helps add structure to my finances and helps my funds keep pace with inflation by targeting a modest return over time. I would be happy to recommend Stephen and MyWealthManagement to anyone looking for professional and trustworthy financial planning advice.

Alison Walsh
Wedding Planner

Unhappy with the premium I was paying on my life policies, I had read about people switching their policies to a new provider and making significant savings, so I made enquiries at and was so impressed with the team who answered all my questions. I now have a much lower premium rate and the whole process was so organised and efficient. The team are highly skilled at determining the client’s position and makes the appropriate recommendations.

Ernest Cantillon

Joey and the team were very helpful throughout the process for our life policy.   We felt very comfortable with the decisions made and knew from the first conversation that we were in safe hand this time round. We have recommended to numerous colleagues & friends.
