“We were recommended to Begley Brown by our solicitor after having had some rather dubious experiences with previous financial planners in larger organisations. We spend a lot of time overseas and were looking for a firm whom we could rely on to communicate wherever we were and who were always available to deal with our affairs.
We are happy with their approach to risk and the amount of advice sought before making recommendations of investments suitable for us.
Like a lot of investors I feel my wife is not fully conversant with financial matters, but I am confident that whatever befalls me, she will be in good hands with Begley Brown whom we both trust will look after her affairs with due care and consideration in a professional and straight forward manner.”
David B Carnegie

I personally have utilized Chris brown for over twelve years with complete satisfaction.”

“Deciding what mortgage is right for you, in your particular circumstance, is never an easy thing. The independent mortgage assessment service provided by Begley Brown was re-assuring, as I knew that I was being offered all possible mortgages currently available in the market.
Above all, and where I believe that Begley Brown demonstrated their true value, was the fact that I felt they really understood my circumstances, and they added additional value to the overall purchasing process, by communicating effectively to my lawyers and me, at every stage of the application process. I would not hesitate in recommending the fantastic service I received from Begley Brown, thank you.”
