Orca Financial is an Irish owned Independent Financial Service company, formed in 2004. Our independent status means that we are not tied to any one product provider, so when you get a quote from us, we guarantee that we’re getting you the best available rate.
Whilst price is important, it’s not everything. We place an equal emphasis on ensuring that you get the right advice. Our Advisors are fully qualified – and experienced. These days, we could do all our business online. But we believe strongly in the personal touch; we believe that one-to-one advice is key to delivering the right cover and successful retirement planning.
Orca Financial is regulated by the Central Bank Of Ireland and a member of PIBA (Profession Insurance Brokers Association).
