Minister for Finance Michael McGrath joined staff at the financial services firm, Provest, to officially open their new office in Douglas, Co. Cork earlier this week.

Founded in 2017 by Mark O’Sullivan, who is currently the Managing Director, Provest employs nine people with three new additions in the last nine months and has moved to its new headquarters to meet the growing demand for their services.  They now have more than 750 clients and have assets to the value of over €220 million under management.

Speaking at the official opening event, Minister for Finance Michael McGrath TD said: “It is heartening to see an Irish financial services company such as Provest grow from strength to strength, particularly during times of economic challenge. It is vitally important for consumers to have independent advice when it comes to addressing any concerns around their future investments.

“There have been a number of important changes to pension provision in recent years aimed at ensuring that people can look forward to their retirement with confidence. I am delighted to be able to support Provest here today and wish them every success in the future.”

The company offers personalised financial advice and high quality customer service to those looking towards their retirement, managing and advising private and corporate clients on a range of items from pensions and life cover to investments and retirement planning.
