Our Heritage

With a shared philosophy, shared principles, and shared values; in 2020 Ethical Financial and Global Wealth merged.

Ethical Financial was established in 1997 by Ray McNicholas with the aim of supporting individuals, families, business owners and charities to achieve their financial goals. Over the years, the business grew considerably, along with a specialist knowledge and expertise in ethical investing. 

Global Wealth traces its history to 2008 when founder, Marc Westlake, developed a commission free financial planning business in Dublin. Marc has worked as an Independent Financial Planning Consultant since 1994 and is a specialist in portfolio management, pensions, tax and estate planning. As an ex-pat himself, Marc is particularly well placed to advise non-domiciled individuals on their financial matters.

In Spring 2022 the company rebranded as Everlake.
