Lived or worked in the UK? You can transfer your Private Pension Fund back to Ireland.

The good news is that it is possible to transfer your Private UK Pension from the UK back to Ireland. This is possible due to the QROPS Scheme (Qualifying Residential Overseas Pension Scheme) which  facilitates Pension transfers from the UK to Ireland.

We have many years arranging such transfers from the UK to Ireland and we can help you figure out the quickest and easiest way to get it done.

Why might it be a good idea to transfer your Private Pension from the UK to Ireland now?

✅ Stock Market Volatility – Consistent stock market volatility has left many pension investors struggling to get information on the impact of market turmoil on their pensions in the UK. Having an Irish based advisor will allow you to get access to information far quicker in times of uncertainty.

✅ BREXIT – Ongoing Brexit uncertainty in the UK has made may people wary of keeping their money in the UK.

✅ Tax – A QROPS registered pension fund can accept transfers from the UK to Ireland without any tax liability

✅ Access – when you access your Pension in later years you will be receiving your money from an Irish Pension Fund as opposed to a UK Pension fund

✅Inheritance – should you pass away your beneficiaries will be claiming your pension from Ireland and not dealing with a pension provider in the UK which would lead to significant delays


✅ Local Irish Advice – your pension fund is administered in Ireland with access to local advice from your Irish advisor

✅ Reputable Providers – your pension fund will be placed with large international reputable pension providers in Ireland

✅  Protect Your Money – protecting what you have built up in your pension fund is important. We can help you decide if now is the right time for you to transfer your UK Pension

✅ Currency Risk – having your Pension money held in Sterling in the UK introduces currency fluctuation risk, whereas having your Pension in Ireland long-term eliminates that additional currency risk

✅ Phone, Email or Webchat – We have clients all over Ireland and staying in contact with them is important during this difficult time. We can look after you by phone, email or webchat, whatever suits you best.

I would like to sincerely thank you and the rest of the team at Guardian Wealth for the professionalism and due diligence in facilitating my pension transfer from the U.K. You and Stefan carried out your duties in an exemplary manner, always returning calls and emails (a rare thing unfortunately these days but one to my mind which sets Guardian Wealth and yourself particularly high in customer relations). I would have absolutely no hesitation in using yourselves again or recommending you to others.

I contacted Guardian Wealth as I was looking to get advice on how best to transfer my UK Pension back to Ireland. I met with Michael a few days later and he explained the process to me, and we got the documentation completed to enact the transfer. I don’t think it was something that I could have completed myself, so I am more than happy to recommend Guardian Wealth to anybody looking to transfer their UK Pension back to Ireland.

Ms Carole Thurston

I had been researching the possibility of transferring my UK Pension back to Ireland for quite some time. However, it wasn’t clear to me what steps I had to take to get it done. Once I contacted Guardian Wealth Jim was able to explain the process to me, organise the paperwork and deal with my UK Pension provider. I am happy to recommend Guardian Wealth to anybody who needs help with their UK Pension transfer.

Mr Staunton, Kilkenny

Trying to get my UK Pension transferred to Ireland was a confusing process. I was getting different advice and opinions from different sources. Michael reviewed my circumstances and was able to explain exactly what my options were. He also contacted the UK pension provider to make sure the process went smoothly. I would have no hesitation recommending Guardian Wealth.

Mr Richard Loker

Many thanks for all your help in making the transfer so seamless. I have to say I thought you did an excellent job and I am lucky to have landed on your website when I first started looking for someone to help me on this

Mr. Patrick McAllister

I thought a pension transfer from the UK to Ireland would be a long drawn out process post-brexit but from the moment I contacted Michael at Guardian Wealth, the whole process was explained in great detail and everything was managed with regular updates. The team at Guardian Wealth were always able to answer any queries I had & were always very professional & efficient in answering emails. Should I need any financial advice in the future I will be contacting your team. I would highly recommend Guardian Wealth to others.
