Paul Murray

Paul qualified as an accountant in 1999 and as a tax consultant in 2002, He also holds a Diploma in Pensions from the Life Insurance Association (LIA), also awarded in 1999, and a Diploma in Trust and Estate Planning jointly awarded from the Law Society and Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) in 2006.

He started his career in banking before moving to a Big 4 accountancy firm and after several years he moved to the pensions industry and since then has held a number of senior management roles in his 20 + years in the industry. He has been co-author of the Irish Taxation Institutes book ‘Pensions: Revenue Law and Practice’ since circa 2006 and has written and lectured extensively in all areas of pensions.


David Kavanagh

David is a Qualified Financial Advisor and Pension Trustee Practitioner and holds a Bsc in Business & Finance. He has worked in a number of different roles in pensions in his 15 plus years in the industry. He began his career as head of administration and client servicing for a large self-directed pension provider and was involved in the introduction of a variety of self-directed structures to the market during that time. 

He then spent a number of years working in the advisory side of the market providing pension and investment advice to high net worth clients, which led him to the belief that a purely service based self-directed pension provider was missing in the market.
