Independent Financial Adviser

Patrick Foley

Bournebridge Financial Services Limited
6 Bevis Marks,
London EC3A 7BA.

My proudest moment as a financial adviser was:

I was introduced to a client at a young age who was really struggling with his spending. It was affecting his performances on the pitch. After three years of hard work and providing him with a financial plan which he stuck to, the best moment for me was sitting alongside his parents when he made his debut for England.

The things I love most about my job are:

The ability to effect positive change in a client’s attitude to money.

The variety of clients I deal with.

The autonomy to build my business how I want to with the clients I feel I can add value to.

The types of people I most enjoy working with are:

Young professional footballers, guiding them on their professional journey.

Entrepreneurs who run their own businesses where I help them extract the most value for them from their businesses.

At work

I moved to the UK the day after completing my Masters in Financial Services in Ireland and started work on the NatWest graduate programme two days later. I was headhunted by Coutts after 12 months on the programme (having been selected as one of three people out of 900 to take part in the scheme).

During nearly seven years at Coutts, I led the bank’s strategy for the professional football market, helping attract new players to the bank for their banking and financial needs. I continue to work with high profile football players and also clients who run their own businesses.

At home

Originally from Kerry in Ireland, I moved over to the UK in September 2009. I got married to Rebecca in late 2018 and I can usually be found hacking up a golf course on the weekends or attending client football games. I also enjoy getting out of London exploring other parts of the UK and Ireland.

Patrick has been a great help in organising my finances and giving clear advice across all areas including the business, with the future in mind.

CEO, Multi-billion pound UK property company

Patrick was able to help me to fill the gaps I didn’t know I had in my financial planning. He is able to link my personal situation with that of the company and offer joined-up thinking across both areas.

James Townsend, Co-founder at KONTOR

On and off the pitch it is important to have a team around you that you can rely on and Patrick is a key part of my team. I have known him for many years and have great peace of mind with him as my financial adviser. Not only does he act as a sounding board for me, but having things taken care of off the pitch so well allows me to concentrate on my football. I have had no hesitation in recommending him to team mates at club and country level who have had similar experiences to me in their dealings with Patrick

Having Patrick as part of our team has been a massive peace of mind for me as I know things off the pitch are taken care of and my family and I are being looked after in an open and honest way.
