Hi and welcome to Ireland's dedicated Financial Planning and Personal Finance Podcast. We are on a mission to share ideas and unbiased insights that might help you make beneficial decisions.

Speaking of mission we are joined this week by non-other than Andy Agathangelou who founded the Transparency Task Force and which is on a mission to have a positive and lasting difference on financial services and on those that it exists to serve.

I was so taken by Andy and the band of volunteers that have joined him that I have accepted the invitation to become Ireland's first (and so far only!) Ambassador. It is my intent to help have a positive difference on this mighty profession so that it can survive, serve and help many more thousands in the years ahead.

Thanks for listening!
