UK-headquartered IFA company Alexander Beard Group (ABG) has opened an office in Dublin.
The office will offer international employee benefit services. But the firm said that within the next three-to-six months, it will also be introducing wealth management and financial planning services.
The team in Ireland is led by directors Ralph Benson and Feargal Mckenna and consists of client support staff Olive Ryan and Blány Henderson.
Paul Beard, ABG’s founder and executive chairman, said: “We have for some years now wanted to expand upon our existing international footprint, by adding an office in Ireland. We already have a handful of multi-national clients whose benefits packages we handle in the UK, France, the Netherlands and Germany and who have expressed a desire for us to look after their staff in Ireland.
“Because Dublin has become an increasingly attractive country to companies in the information technology/software development and social media sectors, this will give us a heightened ability to deliver our services, under one brand, when working with many of our US partners, particularly given our 17-year expertise and experience in working with Silicon Valley headquartered companies.”
Alexander Beard has offices in the UK, Netherlands, France, South Africa, the US, Australia and now Ireland.
