This Is The Place where we will serve up our practical tips and inspiring real-life stories, professional insights and advice to help you improve your Financial Wellbeing and navigate the crossroads where Your Money meets Your Life.
Our focus at Accumulus is to help people achieve a healthier financial life.
We wanted to share all our accumulated knowledge and experience that we had encountered about money across all of Life’s Milestones and everything in between! Plus we have some top guest contributors who have inspired us and continue to help keep our own Wellbeing on the straight and narrow too.
While there are certain restrictions that we as Accumulus must adhere to within the regulated financial planning world, what if there were no restrictions? Well to start with your Personal Finances should not be primarily about Finance.
For us they should be about LIFE.
What you do with your lives, how you spend your time, what motivates you, what is Your WHY?
What would your Top Whys be?
Having the lifestyle of choice?
Having financial freedom and independence?
Having safety and security?
We hope you enjoy the reading and listening to everything we share!

We are both passionate cyclists and ‘the birth’ of Accumulus came to us further to completing one of our most challenging and iconic climbs to the summit of the famous Mont Ventoux in the French Alps – as depicted below.
Thanks to our Cycling Coach who put a training plan together for us, we achieved one of our biggest cycling goals. This journey symbolised to us the challenge we all face when it comes to Personal Finance and how having a Finance Coach can make the difference in reaching our own Life Goals. This then lead us to founding Life and Money Ireland.
