I was paying large sums of money for my previous insurance premiums. I had no idea that it would be a worth getting these reviewed until I spoke to Barry Walsh. I'm glad I did! Not only did I save lots of money on insurance premiums but Barry helped me liaise with my previous insurers to effect a smooth transition to my new arrangements so there was minimal effort from my side. I would happily recommend Barry Walsh Financial Services to anyone wishing to review their fiancial siuation or acquire financial products and services. Thank you, Barry.

Reducing costs is the name of the game now. I got Barry to look at my policies and he got me better cover for less money. He also made a donation to Down Syndrome Ireland on my behalf just because I became a customer. Professional, courteous, helpful all come to mind.

Tony & Annís, Griffith Place Waterford.

I had a number of policies that cost me a lot of money but it turns out my cover was not adequate. Barry looked at my policies, pointed out in simple English what adjustments I should make and saved me over Ä600 per year. I also got the first two months premia free as Zurich Life had an offer on saving me over Ä300 straight off. Nearly Ä900 now available this year for a holiday. I would strongly recommend Barry Walsh Financial.

Barry saved me money on my Life & Income Protection costs. As a broker he has ten different agencies and I understand he got them all to compete for my business. Bottom line is I got my cover for less. Very easy to do business with him, he took care of it all very professionally. Good experience!

I was very upset over the losses that I had suffered with my pension. Barry came in and looked at the situation and gave me a fund that is 100% guaranteed and gives me a guaranteed return of 4.75% per annum. I donít worry anymore .I have recommended Barry Walsh Financial to my employees.

I know Barry for a good number of years and I find him very professional & helpful. He gives a very personal service. He has huge contacts in the Financial Services Industry and he used those contacts to get me an excellent deal on my pension fund.

Barry has only recently taken over the role of advising me on my pension. No jargon just simple sound advice is what Barry has given me. Barry Walsh Financial is a definite recommend for me.

Lydia Phelan
Lydia Phelan Associates, Williamstown Road, Waterford.

Barry has been looking after my Life cover and savings since the mid-nineties when he was working in AIB Bank. Since he set up his own brokerage the choice & calibre of the products that he has available has certainly increased a lot. Solid & trustworthy I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Liz Dowling
MM Halley & Co Solrs, Slievekeale Road, Waterford.

I have dealt with Barry for the last three years having met him first in National Irish Bank in his role as a Wealth Manager. I followed him when he set up his own firm because he always makes the time to deal with my needs personally. I have benefited hugely from my association with Barry as he always gets me the best deal available.

Michael O Neill

Barry was recommended to me by a friend when I sought out someone reliable and trustworthy to give me advice on my pension planning. I like the fact that he is not tied to one company so the choice of products is wide. Professional, honest, straight- talking are the words I would use to describe him. A breath of fresh air in an industry where the right advisor is essential.

Cian Foley
UTD Web Design, Shangan, Butlerstown, Waterford.

I know Barry for many years and I have found him to be top class at his job. He has always given me sound advice. I recently took my retirement benefits as I reached 65 years of age. Barry guided me through the various choices explaining to me in a simple fashion the benefits of each option. A complex decision was made so easy with his help and it gave me great peace of mind. Highly recommended.
