Offering Trusted Financial advice since 1991

Flexible personal service

Our processes are fully digitised which means you can choose to meet with us remotely or in-person. Since Covid a lot of our clients have embraced remote working arrangements and are comfortable discussing their financial plans by video link e.g. Zoom. This allows our clients to arrange their financial review meetings at a time that suits them and with a minimum level of intrusion into their home or working life.

Of course since the easing of Covid restrictions we are free to meet in person again and this remains the most popular option for many clients. Why not contact us to discuss your requirements by arranging a callback. Once we receive your request we will give you a quick phone or video call to find out if the services we provide are the services you require.

    John Forsythe QFA FLIA RPA

    why choose us

    The Competition Authority found that demand for financial advice was more price sensitive in the broker market than through direct channels. With 1,200 Financial Brokers in Ireland, the six domestic life companies are much more competitive with regard to price, product design, investment performance and service than they would be if they dealt with advisers who are tied only to them.

    Better Life Insurance

    Forsythe Financial Planning is the brainchild of John Forsythe QFA FLIA RPA. John has worked as a financial advisor since 1991 and established his own firm in 2009.


    Forsythe Financial Planning is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. We hold Professional Indemnity insurance and contribute to the Investor Compensation scheme.


    John Forsythe QFA FLIA RPA is a Qualified Financial Advisor (QFA), a Fellow of the Life Insurance Association (FLIA) and a fully qualified Retirement Planning Advisor (RPA).


    Continued use of the QFA designation is subject to meeting annual Continuous Professional Development requirements. We constantly study and review relevant markets and receive regular updates from product providers, industry bodies and regulators


    We hold written agency appointments with the 5 main insurers in Ireland and a carefully selected number of specialist investment and pension providers. To find out more please refer to our Terms of Business.

    Personal Service

    Unlike the Banks or some of the larger Brokers we are dedicated to looking after a limited number of clients. This ensures that we develop strong and lasting relationships. Many clients have used our services for over 20 years.
