Podcast117: A Wolf In Sheep-Clothing…..You’ve Been Warned!

10th December 2018

Paddy Delaney


Welcome back to Ireland’s independent & award winning Financial Planning Blog & Podcast. We don’t claim to be perfect but we have been creating and sharing ideas here on the podcast for the past 2 years and are on a mission to help people of Ireland (& beyond!) to make decisions which benefit them in the long-run. All we ask is that if you like what we are doing that you’d tell a friend or loved-one about us and see if it can be of any use to them!

Speaking of long-run we are hugely grateful for your ongoing support, readership and listenership, if the few thousand of you who listen every month didn’t do so we wouldn’t still be producing the show, so thanks for that, we love it! I know I say ‘we’ but it is really only me, but for some reason it seems right to me! Maybe we will be a we in future! Last week we tackled Entrepreneur Relief, and had some interesting emails from some entrepreneurs who have learned a thing or two as a result, which is cool!

This week I have to vent a little, not for my own good but as a bit of a warning or war-cry for us all. It is pretty disappointing that people still need to be warned about what I am talking about today but it is a fact, and an important one at that. What I am talking about is a charging structure that I witnessed on a retail savings product recently, that was being promoted on a state-funded website by an ‘advisor’ with national media coverage. It also ties-in with my announcing that I have recently become Ireland’s first Ambassador for the Transparency Task-Force. This is a voluntary group/movement based in several countries, with a few hundred members, and a dozen or so ambassadors. As the title suggests they exist in order to encourage more transparency and improved provision of information in financial services industry. I hope to interview the founder Andy Agethangelou in January so we’ll have more for you in a few weeks!
