Irish pension transfer guide

This in-depth guide includes:


Your first initial meeting and fact find with one of our qualified financial advisers is FREE.

In this meeting, your adviser will take a look at your circumstances; where you are in the world, where your assets currently are, and help come up with a plan of financial objectives.


We send a letter of authority (LOA) to your pension provider/s. This is an information request and does not permit us to make any changes to your current pension/s.

Then your pension provider will provide us with the details of your current benefits and the terms & conditions of your scheme. They will also provide a transfer value. This states the amount they would pay you to exit the scheme.


Hoxton Capital will prepare a comprehensive report for you that details your current schemes benefits and shows a comparison with your alternative options.

If you decide that a transfer is right for you, Hoxton Capital will arrange all the required paperwork to facilitate the transfer and set up the pension you wish to transfer into. Once the transfer is complete, we will then provide advice on how to best manage your assets within the new pension, in line with your preferred strategy, and help you meet your goals.
