Why Gillen for Investment Advice?

Personalised Planning

The first step involves us meeting and listening to you and working hard to really understand your specific circumstances, your concerns and your goals.

One of our advisors then undertakes a detailed financial and investment review to clarify your current financial position and offer you advice on a way forward.

Our investment solutions include a full array of investments available in the marketplace (and includes both stocks and funds). We advise on personal, pension and corporate monies.

Deep Expertise

Our team has significant professional experience in the investment advisory market and is united in a commitment to a client-first offering.

Depth of Research, Insights & Unique Perspectives

We have a deep understanding of the various asset classes and how to assess the value on offer in them. We carry out and publish our own research on any stock or fund we recommend and we meet the managers of any fund we recommend.


We are professional investment advisors and not product sellers. We do not benefit from any stock or fund we recommend to a client.

Our Process

Initial Conversation

The first thing we do is to listen to your needs and your concerns and work to get a clear understanding of your objectives. Then we collate details on your current financial position: your income, your pension arrangements, existing investments and debts. We ask you to complete an application form, so that we can identify your personal tolerance for risk.

Face to Face Meeting

We sit down with you in person or online, so we can review the relevant facts and assess your financial needs, expectations and goals.

Detailed Financial Review

We then complete a detailed investment review which offers advice and potential investment solutions that should suit your goals, needs and tolerance for risk.

Agree & Implement the Financial Plan

We then work to execute the agreed plan and we subsequently review your plan at appropriate intervals to ensure that it remains fit for purpose in terms of meeting your goals and expectations.
