At Bespoke Investments Limited, in conjunction with our sister trustee company, Bespoke Trustees Limited, our aim is to provide financial advisors in Ireland with the highest quality ‘Bespoke’ self-administered pension products and ‘Bespoke’ structured investment products.
Bespoke does not offer financial advice directly, rather we distribute our pension and investment products through our network of over 130 authorised insurance and investment intermediaries nationwide. Bespoke offers intermediaries and their clients formidable technical expertise, with three Revenue Appointed Pensioneer Trustees, four Qualified Financial Advisors (QFA), two Fellows of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA) and one Associate of the Institute of Taxation of Ireland (AITI) on its team. We also retain the best external technical advisors in the industry to complement our own internal technical prowess, with former Revenue Commissioner Clive Slattery retained for the provision of Revenue based pensions advice and a top pensions based legal firm for pensions based legal advice.
In order to distribute Bespoke Investment Limited’s pension and investment products, financial advisors must have an agency with Bespoke Investments Limited. Financial advisors interested in obtaining an agency, please download, complete and return the agency application form in the agency application section of the website.
