Day one in Dublin

Day one in Dublin

Citywire started their tour of the Irish wealth management community on Monday as the team landed and headed straight to an afternoon of meetings. Our taxi from the airport to the city centre proved more educational than anticipated, with alternative stories recounted about the city’s Millennium Spike by our taxi driver.

First up was Davy, Ireland’s largest investment management company, especially after its acquisition of competitor Bloxham which was forced into administration following accounting inaccuracies. Straight out the door from meeting one of Davy’s key individuals, we moved onto to Tilman Brewin Dolphin to meet with Ray Tilson. Ray set up Tilman 17 years ago and the company was recently taken over by Brewin Dolphin.

We headed back to the hotel to discuss what we had learnt from our first encounters, and to prepare for the next two jam-packed days, including our drinks evening at Café en Seine on Tuesday night.
