What’s in a name?
- Unwavering, unfaltering, resolute, committed, dedicated, persistent, firm, loyal, trusty, dependable, faithful, devoted, trustworthy, stalwart, reliable, constant.
At Steadfast Financial Consulting Ltd we believe that everything is in the name. The very word “Steadfast” embodies everything that we, as a company, stand for. Our commitment is to our clients and we are dedicated to the task of providing those clients with the best possible financial advice and as wide a range of financial solutions as possible to allow that advice to be followed.
We will be constantly looking for ways to improve the quality of the service we provide to our clients and striving to add real value to that service. One exciting development in this area is the introduction of the “Steadfast Newsletter”. This will be mailed to all of our clients at intervals throughout the year and we will be giving updates on financial matters such as, for example, new investment opportunities, protection price comparisons, investment fund performance details as well as features on the different products and solutions that we offer. We will be encouraging clients to e-mail or write to us with their comments on how we could further improve service levels as we firmly believe that it is only by listening to our loyal clients that we can truly understand what they want.
So, to summarise...
Our Mission Statement.
To work closely with our clients to provide them with the best possible advice,
based on their own individual needs.
To provide a quality of service that is consistent with, or exceeds,
our clients’ expectations.
To add value by listening to our clients’ views and giving them the
type of service they want and not just what we think they want!
Both of Steadfast Financial Consulting Limited’s Directors have a wealth of experience in the financial services industry combining over forty five years in total.
Craig spent twelve years working as a Financial Consultant with Eagle Star Life. Prior to that he fulfilled a similar role with Irish Life Assurance for two years after leaving the Banking Industry in the UK where he worked for over seven years. Craig is a Qualified Financial Advisor and has also passed the Life Assurance Association’s Pensions Diploma.
John has a very similar career history to Craig having spent eleven years in the UK Banking Industry before leaving to work for Prudential UK as a Financial Advisor dealing with their “High net-worth” division. After two years, the opportunity arose for him to move to Ireland to work as a Financial Consultant with Eagle Star Life where he has carved out a successful career for the last ten years. He has attained the same high level of relevant qualifications as his co-director.
Both John and Craig enjoyed very successful careers with Eagle Star and both felt that the natural progression was to break away from the constraints of working for only one company and set up a high quality financial intermediary company of their own to enable them to offer a more specialised service as well as a far greater choice for clients.
