Testimonials

Manning Financial have been advising me on various financial issues over the last 2 years both personally and within my business activities. Breon is totally dedicated to providing the very best service and advice in all aspects of the financial, and has proven time and time again to go well beyond the expected service of a typical financial adviser.

Sean Murphy Private Client

Breon is an "Advisor" in every sense of that word. Unlike some financial advisors, he is not sales motivated. For someone like me in the "advice" business, it is a refreshing change to deal with someone not motivated by selling financial products which don't necessarily meet my needs. His proactive approach to financial planning has already put me in a much stronger position. With his help and advice, I hope to build upon this foundation so that my future is financially secure. I feel that he is someone I can completely trust, and therefore have no problem in recommending him to any friends or colleagues.

David Collins Managing Director Cresco Accountants

In the years that Breon has been advising me on my financial affairs he has always been thoughtful and insightful with regard to my needs, rather than his own. His investment suggestions have been sensible and fair, and even in the current challenging conditions Breon has continued to be driven by a desire to serve my best interests, rather than just being a salesman.

Catherine Griffin Barrister

We have referred many clients to Manning Financial We have found Breon to be both professional and thorough in providing clients with the most up to date advice. I have received very positive feedback from clients who have done business with Manning Financial. I will continue to recommend clients to them as I believe they will provide clients with the best advice and options available to them.

Mark Barry Partner Fitzgerald & Associates Accountants

Breon has contributed insightful and beneficial consulting for both myself personally and for clients of the practice.I have no hesitation recommending Breon for his hard-work, professionalism and attention to detail.

David Sweeney Partner Principal Sweeney & Co Solicitors

Manning Financial recently advised us on partnership insurance. This is a specialist area of financial services requiring particular knowledge and expertise, and Manning Financial did not disappoint. They were fully on top of their brief and a pleasure to deal with.
