Dave Gahan is not a product seller, and operates a fixed fee option for investment recommendations. The portfolio based guidance provided by Dave helped me to consider any investment decision in a wider context bearing in mind my overall investment objectives and the risk / return trade off

Dave Gahan has been advising me since late 2000 on pension provisions and investments. His advice always focuses on my specific needs and his advice is prompt, measured, well researched, and delivered in a readily comprehensible format. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone requiring professional pensions or investment advice.

I have been in practice for over 12 years and since I started in business I have used David Gahan of Investment Intelligence for all investment and pension advice, both personally and for clients. In all of that time I have never had one complaint from any of my clients that Dave dealt with about the advice given to them or about the level of service received. It is so helpful for me to have an independent adviser of this calibre to refer to with technical queries and to refer clients on to, content in the knowledge that their investments will be very well looked after and the clients very well informed about what is going on. The annual updates of investments and pensions help to keep everyone focused on what their money is invested in and the potential final results. On a personal level I am very happy that Dave is looking after any pensions or investments I have. It is always a pleasure to deal with Dave.

Dave Gahan of Investment Intelligence was recommended to me in the early 2000's when I had returned to Ireland from the UK and initially needed to set up a company pension and consider other investments. I certainly found his services to be very thorough and Dave has an excellent knowledge of the financial markets in Ireland. There is a lot of research (and paperwork) but a big part of that is taking the time to establish the level of risk you/one is prepared to take when considering long term investment. Dave has a personable approach and provides useful regular investment reviews. Essentially he had made the process simpler and as enjoyable as taking a risk can be. His diligence throughout the rough and the smooth years to date has been successful therefore making it easy to recommend him/ Investment Intelligence with no hesitation to companies and/or individuals.

When I first came in contact with Investment Intelligence, I needed an advisor whom I could relate to easily, and who could provide me with options for investment, in layman’s terms, in a clear, concise manner of presentation and discussion. It was important that the advisor understood clearly my own career situation and time-horizons, and that the investment proposals put forward suited these factors. It was also very important for me to trust my advisor, and to be confident of my advisor’s integrity and good business acumen. From the beginning, I found the approach of the executives in Investment Intelligence to be very open, respectful, confident and efficient. Regular reviews and reports have been received, and the face to face review meetings are particularly valuable and informative. Information on the tracking of performance is very clearly set out and presented. Outside influences, which might impact positively or negatively on each element of the portfolio are set out, options are discussed and recommendations are given. I have access to detailed information on any aspect of my investment portfolio at any time, and can set up face to face meetings with Dave Gahan at short notice. Sometimes, I have sought to make some changes – reflecting my outside investment activities – that have required Investment Intelligence to tap into their goodwill with financial institutions in order to achieve my demands. This they have done willingly and competently. I have no hesitation in recommending Investment Intelligence to others.
