Customer Testimonials - Financial Advisor Cork, Financial Planning | MBC Financial


Our customers are very important to us and we always want to know what they think. Here are just a few of our customers and what they think of us.

Ronan Aherne, Director, Keta Products Limited.

I always find MBC Financial to be very professional, knowledgeable and efficient. Their service is proactive and exceptional and I am confident that I am receiving the best that the market has to offer at any time.

Deirdre Collins, Managing Director, Colso Cold Storage Limited.

Since we started working with MBC Financial we have found that the obvious confusion that is so often associated with pensions and business protection has been removed. We are now able to make informed decisions very easily and have an excellent working relationship with them.


I have found MBC Financial and in particular Alan to be very professional in all aspects of the service and advice provided. He has ensured that what can be complex issues around pension and investment decisions are very clear and accessible.

Andrea C.

I wanted to make my money work for me but didn’t know where or how to start. Alan and the team at MBC advised me that a matrix investment bond and savings plus plan would best suit my needs, and while I can let my money work for me in the background there is always someone available to answer any questions I may have.

Peter C.

I’ve been using MBC financial for the last 20 years. The company has changed personnel on occasion but their standard has never dropped. They have advised me well on all aspects of investment and have made money on all my invested policies picking the investments to suit my needs.


I have savings, pension & life assurance policies with MBC Financial, and have done for the past 15 years. Thank you very much for your promptness, follow up and professionalism at all times. The calls, emails and explanations/information from you were always outstanding and allowed me to make educated decisions. Thanks to you Alan and Sarah – a first class service!

Colin B.

1. You are always at the end of the phone if we need any information or advice.
2. Your range of knowledge on pensions and investments has helped us to no end.
3. Our recent purchase of a property through our pension has been a great investment for us and would not have happened without you.
4. Your advice on life and property insurances has also proved invaluable to myself and my wife.


Alan and Sarah were wonderful to deal with and we are very happy with the advice given to us in our financial planning. They tailored a suitable and personal plan to suit our needs whilst organising it all so seamlessly. They are also both very approachable, which made the process easy.


We have been a client of MBC Financial Limited for the last 10 years and I would highly recommend Alan and his team – very personalised service, always at hand to give advice and help us invest wisely in our future. I would have no hesitation in recommending MBC Financial Ltd.

I have been with MBC Financial for many years, managing my pension fund and investments, their professional knowledge in the industry, advice and guidance has been excellent. As a self employed Engineer, I have confidence in MBC financial and would recommend them to anyone looking for financial advice on investments and pensions.

Martin l.

What I like most about MBC is that it’s a truly personal service. Other providers seem to treat even small requests like a burden whereas Alan & Sarah are polite and quick to respond. It’s that kind of courteous professionalism that stands them apart from the crowd.Too often big companies treat me like a burden rather than a customer. Since coming to MBC I know my business is valued and that I genuinely have an expert in my corner looking after my best interest. MBC aren’t just a pretty face either. Alan has the courage and competence to know when to advise against decisions, even with headstrong people like me. My pensions and investments have flourished under their guidance. I have no hesitation in recommending MBC.

Deirdre O

MBC Financial have been providing financial advice to my husband and I for the past 10 years. With both of us working and leading busy lives, financial planning hasn’t always been top of the priority list, that’s why we looked to MBC Financial to become our trusted Financial Adviser. We find Alan and staff to be friendly, professional and very practical when it comes to financial advice. Regular updates and yearly reviews are very helpful in a changing financial environment.

Ryan H.

I have been dealing with MBC financial and Alan Mc Carthy in particular for the last 10 years as my financial advisor. I find the company very professional and fully transparent with their financial advice & services. They keep regular contact with me and arrange an annual review of my portfolio. They never put pressure on me to expand my portfolio and make it clear only to invest what I am comfortable with. I have my pension and savings plans with MBC Financial and I am very happy with their service.

Alan P.

We have been a client of MBC for many years now. We have always found them very professional and extremely helpful with any and every aspect of our business. We found their website easy to navigate and there is always someone at the end of a telephone call to guide us when needed. We have no hesitation in recommending MBC to everyone.

Richard M.

In the 7 years since I have the support of Alan McCarthy and MBC Financial Limited, I have always had clear and firm advice, delivered in the most courteous – indeed, gracious and friendly – manner from everyone, from Managing Director to Secretary with whom I have engaged. It has been a totally stress free experience, on all occasions, and any questions that I put were always answered in a very timely manner. MBC have also been proactive in tendering advice and supporting me by appropriate questions as to whether my proposed course of action was in alignment with my long term interests. I would have no hesitation in recommending MBC Financial to my friends and associates.
