Supporting Employers - Engaging with People!

We're all about engaging with people around their finances in a way that they really understand, we call it ‘Personal Finance – made personal ‘! We support our larger corporate clients by providing workplace personal finance education and wellness for employees.

Our corporate clients tell us that investing in a broad-based wellness programme for employees makes sense. It reduces stress, improves workplace effectiveness, and crucially adds to the bottom line!

Separately, as a distinct offering for individuals and SME business owners we also provide impartial, unbiased financial advice based on their personal circumstances. We’re regulated by The Central Bank of Ireland to do so. In addition we also help our clients to prepare their Tax Returns and to maximise their position going forward.  

Our clients benefit, and take reassurance, from our ‘joined up’ thinking and nuanced insights because we’re qualified, regulated and experienced as financial advisors, tax practitioners, accountants and financial wellness experts.    

Recent studies indicate that over 60% of the workforce feel financially stressed – that’s more than stress from relationships, health and work, combined

what is Financial Wellness?

Our definition of financial wellness is not merely the avoidance of financial hardship, it’s much more positive than that! We like to define financial wellness separately for employers and for employees.

For employers, financial wellness is an integrated programme designed to improve employees’ financial behaviour and outcomes while also driving business impact.

For employees, financial wellness is holistic and defined by health, not wealth. Employees enjoy a greater understanding of their major financial milestones, they’re empowered to make optimal financial decisions and have the support they need to achieve their money goals.

What We Can Do:

  • Raise Awareness
  • Provide Education
  • Give Support
  • Change Behaviour
If we don’t know where we’re going it makes no difference how fast we travel

Independent Financial Advice For Individuals

We work with people to help them to manage their financial resources and to attain their personal financial goals in life.

Whilst the starting point of our discussions will always be the clients' 'financials' ( their income/expenses/assets etc.), we put even greater store into building relationships with people and learning their personal, 'softer' issues (their values around money, lifestyle, financial priorities etc.).

What We Can Do:

  • Provide Advice
  • Assist With Planning
  • Execute Strategies
  • Help Clients Reach Financial Goals

Our Aims

Shelbourne Financial aim to become a leading provider of workplace financial wellness services to the corporate market. We believe that there is a growing awareness amongst employers that providing broad-based wellness and support (of which financial wellness would be an integral part) is good for employees and good for employers, improving productivity and the bottom line.

As a separate and distinct service offering we aim to provide independent financial advice of a strategic, yet practical, nature to personal clients and SME owners on their needs and wants in the investment, savings, retirement and protection area.
