Welcome To Financial Innovations

We are based in Cork, with a diverse client base spread throughout Ireland. Clients have access to a broad range of financial advice services, investment opportunities and financial solutions.

Our aim is to build and maintain a long-term relationship with all our clients. We offer each client a personalized advisory service driven by the client’s own individual needs. We are never too busy to talk to you, and if this means meeting or talking with you outside of your busy working day, then it is no problem.

Our Promise

 

At Financial Innovations we always put our customers first by ensuring they receive the best advice. We are not tied to any one lender or insurance company so you can be assured of expert, impartial advice.

Free Mortage Advice

 

Like all other brokers, we receive a payment from the lender when the mortgage completes. The difference is that unlike other mortgage brokers, we simply choose not to charge our customers a fee on top of this.

Our Promise

 

At Financial Innovations we always put our customers first by ensuring they receive the best advice. We are not tied to any one lender or insurance company so you can be assured of expert, impartial advice.

We dealt with Financial Innovations in 2014 for our mortgage.  As first-time buyers we didn’t know where to start and John Barrett made everything very easy for us, guiding us through the whole process from obtaining loan offers from different mortgage providers to arranging the insurance cover we needed.  We found John Barrett and Marie O’Flynn to be extremely helpful and responsive at all times.  Now we are delighted to be living in our first home.

Seán and Megan, Cork

I would highly recommend both John Barrett and Marie O’Flynn of Financial Innovations

John and Marie assisted my wife and I with getting a mortgage for our first property. As we were based in Sydney we thought that this would be a very tough ordeal however John and Marie streamlined the process and were always quick to return an email which is of great importance when you are not based locally.

I have since recommended Financial Innovations to a number of friends and I wouldn’t hesitate in using them again myself in the future.

My husband & I just received the keys to our dream home. We never thought this was possible until we phoned & spoke... with Evan. He has definitely been the "key" literally to our success in securing a mortgage & buying our home.From start to finish he has been with us from the hights to the the lows.Every question, email & phone call he was their to reassure us about everything. What I admired mostly about Evan is that I never felt like I was been treated like a "client " or just another job, he genuinely wants to help & he'll go out of his way to do that for you.Evan thank you & Financial Innovations so very much for all you did for us it will never be forgotten.Sarah & Teus 🤗read more

I forgot to leave review after deal was close and then I forgot about that at all my bed. I can really highly recommend... Financial Innovation , especially Evan who was looking after us from the beginning to the end to make our dream come true with our new home. We can't be thankful to him enough as he was so helpful with all paperwork and all. I'm sure without him finalising our purchase could be impossible. Thanks again Evan for everything.Sincerely,Anna and Adam.read more

Myself and my partner recently bought our home in Cobh and used Financial Innovations as our broker at the... recommendation of a friend of ours. That was the best recommendation I've ever gotten and now I'm passing it forward.Our broker was Evan Barrett who was absolutely amazing. He brought us painlessly through every last step of the process from the very beginning until we had keys in hand. He was incredibly informative, professional, friendly, hard working and understanding. He eased any fears we had at any stage and brought us smoothly through any roadblocks we encountered along the way. Particularly one major drama we had regarding maternity leave. Evan spent many long evenings corresponding with me and fighting our corner with the bank and thankfully, his hard work and persistence paid off. We now have our beautiful family home.We would highly recommend this company to anyone wishing to purchase a house, I don't know how we would have managed without Evan.To those reading this, hoping to start their process, ask for Evan Barrett. I speak from experience, he will work for you and will not let you down.To Evan, we can't thank you enough. Without you we would have been lost!The Kavanaghsread more

I recently decided to buy a house locally and contacted John to see if he could assist. To say John and his team, Becca... in particular , went above and beyond would be an understatement. Every query was answered within no time and the whole process was made so smooth for me that there was never a question of pressure or stress. The professionalism along with personalization of the team was remarkable, you never felt like you were just a number for them. I would highly recommend to get in contact with John and his team.read more

I dealt with Brid in organising the mortgage for my first home. She was extremely knowledgeable and efficient but, even... more importantly, she explained all the mortgage jargon etc in ways that made the whole process less daunting. She is also one of the friendliest people I have dealt with in a long time. Excellent service overall. Have already recommended this company to anyone I know who is planning a home purchase.read more

Buying your first home can be a daunting process but before you get to the exciting part there is typically a mortgage... process to get through! I’ve worked in the customer service area for many years and the service provided by John in getting our mortgage was absolutely outstanding! The time he personally invested in ensuring everything was setup & ready to be approved by the bank was phenomenal! Regular updates & friendly chats can be a thing of the past for some companies but not for John. Thanks to him we are in our beautiful home today and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for financial advice 😊read more

My fiancée and I were with Evan from Financial Innovations for our first time buyers mortgage. I cannot recommend Evan... from Financial Innovations enough - he was outstanding from start to finish. Evan is highly professional, reliable and efficient. We thought taking a mortgage out in the height of a global pandemic would be difficult but Evan made it so easy and achievable for us. I truly feel that Evan went above and beyond his duties with all of the extra bits he helped us with, not to mention the out of office hours work he put into our case. I am sure that there was no stone un-turned for us. I will continue to recommend Financial Innovations to all of my friends and family, they are exceptional at what they do!read more

My wife and I worked with Financial Innovations for our mortgage and life assurance plan.When that journey in life... comes along, it can be very daunting because obviously you know you need to have a pile of cash to get a mortgage and it is hard to pile that cash together while living life and knowing where to start out can be confusing because of all the adverts on the TV and to know which one would be best for you.John, Marie and their team made all this way less stressful than we thought it would be. Now, there is paperwork required but Marie made it very clear what we needed and when we needed it by. The best thing was that anytime we rang, we got through to one of the team who knew what was happening with our mortgage, it wasnt a case of speaking to a random different person each time and having to explain your details again and again which I've heard of from friends, we had none of that.We got to know the team inside over time and I can honestly say, they are brill at what they do.I would highly recommend Financial Innovations to anyone starting off the mortgage journey.Thank you to all the teamHappy Out in our new homeMartin & Elaineread more

Marie and her team at FINI were exceptional.We cannot thank them enough for all their hard work. As a result of ... their expertise and diligence we managed to have the mortgage approved and drawdown within 8 weeks of having first made the mortgage application!We were kept updated throughout and in particular the last week. There is no way we would have closed the week before Christmas without Marie's help. In fact we would not have been in a position to purchase our lovely home without them.read more

We cannot recommend John Barrett and his colleagues at Financial Innovations enough. John helped us with what we... thought was going to be a very complicated and tricky mortgage for our first home. He made the whole process simple and straightforward. John was meticulous, efficient and very open with us every step of the way. He took the stress (as much as he could anyway) out of the process for us by dealing with the banks directly and providing us with open and honest feedback throughout. We really don’t think we would be living in our house today if it wasn’t for the professional and personal approach of John and his team.Thank you for everything, you guys are amazing!Dan & Robynread more

Where do I start, I only wish there was more than 5 stars available. An absolute fantastic service provided by John and... the team. After visiting a so called "mortgage adviser" in the city center and being told that there was no chance of getting a mortgage due to an issue outside of our control a friend recommended to speak with John and I am so glad I made that call. From the moment I had that phone conversation to the completion of the whole process, John and the team went above and beyond to make sure we ticked all the boxes and got that mortgage application through.Myself and Karen are so thankful for the job that was done and the complete professionalism used when at times we were hitting some issues, John sorted them out.We cannot recommend Financial Innovations enough, thank you again John, Evan and team for everything...read more
