We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: all the accolades in the world don’t matter if your head and heart aren’t in the right place. Every professional we hire, every person, is committed to helping you to understand your unique financial picture and grasp what you need to do, now and in the long term, to meet your goals.
Sinéad joined the Metis Ireland team towards the end of 2020. Hailing from Cork, Sinéad graduated from the University of Limerick in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Studies with a major in Risk Management and Insurance (try saying that ten times fast). From there she entered the world of financial services, completed her QFA in 2018, and has never looked back.
Hello Sinéad! First things first: can you describe the kind of work you do every day in just three words?
Interesting, Diverse, Rewarding.
Those are three excellent words. Good choices. We realise it’s not been long, but what’s been your proudest moment at Metis Ireland so far?
I’ve really enjoyed learning how a personal approach can be used in financial planning, putting clients first and seeing the difference that makes for each client. Very rewarding.
It really is – and that’s exactly what gets us out of bed in the mornings. Let’s dig a little deeper and get to know you better: is there a quote or phrase that goes through life with you?
Yes: ‘If it is to be, it is up to me’. For me, that means when you put in the work you will get your rewards. Luck follows hard work!
Too true. It doesn’t just happen in a vacuum! What’s in your Metis LifePlan?
To progress in my career and buy a home in the next few years.
Ooh lovely. It’s a wonderful feeling, picking up the keys to a new home.
Sinéad, where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
I bet everyone usually says somewhere abroad, but I really enjoy visiting West Cork. It seems like a different country, but it’s so close. Of course, it’s even better when the sun shines!
Sometimes the best things are right on your doorstep. Just two more questions: first, who is your hero and why?
Mary O’Connor – from being a dual player for Cork for so many years and now as CEO of the Federation of Irish Sport. She has done so much to help promote female participation in sport. As an avid sportswoman myself, she’s an icon.
Love it. And finally, if you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
Understand the importance of having a close group of people who will encourage and support you. Prize quality over quantity!
What a wonderful note to end on. Thank you for your time Sinéad!
