At the LCSA we would like to update our members with regard to the solutions that Glennons have in place to insure the cars of family members, including young drivers. This scheme has received fantastic feedback in relation to the exclusive savings and benefits that have been provided since it was introduced.  Having recognised the difficulty in obtaining Car Insurance where there are multiple vehicles in the family, and in particular the high cost associated with young drivers, Glennon have arranged an Exclusive Family Multi-Car Insurance policy for Chartered Accountants Ireland members. This policy provides excellent policy benefits together with significant premium discounts for households with more than two cars in the family and can cater for the following: Cover for your children’s cars whilst residing with you or studying away from home Facilities to add your children or au pair as named drivers to your own cars Luxury, High Performance or Classic Cars Cars registered in a company name Discounts for multiple cars on a single policy Please see an example below of the savings that have been achieved. Total Savings Produced for the member was €3,010 Glennon Family Multi-Car Policy with: 4 Cars (BMW X5, Mercedes C220, Mini Cooper and Volkswagen Polo) 4 Drivers aged 57, 53, 24 and 21 years old. The Standard Premium Based on 4 individual policies was €7,050 The Premium on the Glennon Multi-Car Policy was €4,040. To qualify for this policy the primary car must be valued in excess of €30,000 when new and is subject to eligibility criteria being met. Brendan, Chartered Accountant, Glennon Multi-Car Policy Client “Glennon Insurance have been my motor and home insurance broker for 30 years, providing a professional, competitive and personalised service.  But recently I presented the real challenge. We went from a standard two car quote with two named drivers to needing insurance cover on three cars with two adult drivers and three young drivers aged 18, 20 and 22 with minimum no claims bonus or driving experience. In addition one of our children’s polices needed to be in their own name.  But Glennon had the solution. Their multi-Car Family policy with Chubb offered a very competitive quote, much better than anything I could find in the market (and I tried!).  The policy was flexible and they also facilitated the cancellation and refunds of our existing polices on the new policy date. It was simply great that Glennon had the foresight to introduce a product that meets the family needs of their clients. I have since recommended the products to neighbours and friends and will continue to do so” In order to obtain a quotation contact Glennon’s dedicated Multi-Car team on 01 7075955 or visit Glennons website if you would like more information.

Supporting post-COVID economic recovery will be top priority for largest accounting body. Following today’s AGM, the gender balance of the Institute’s Council stands at 50:50.  Paul Henry has been elected President of Chartered Accountants Ireland for 2020/2021 at its 132nd Annual General Meeting today, held virtually for the first time. Addressing the Chartered Accountants Ireland AGM, Mr Henry said his key priority as President of Ireland’s largest accounting body would be to harness the ability, experience and expertise of its membership network to support economic recovery in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addressing the challenges of COVID-19, he said: “This is, of course primarily a public health crisis and businesses have rightly taken unprecedented steps to protect their staff and the public. “As we come through the immediate threat of the pandemic, we will face the significant challenge of rebuilding the economies of the island of Ireland. I believe that our 28,500 members working in leadership, finance or advisory roles throughout Irish business, will play a key role in kick-starting the recovery and ensuring that business bounces back strongly. “It will be the challenge of a generation, requiring a collaborative approach between business, political leaders and the public sector. Chartered Accountants Ireland will be a strong supporter and advocate for the business community and the positive impact that a renewed economy can have for all throughout our society.” Mr Henry said that as well as supporting its current members, Chartered Accountants Ireland would work to highlight the opportunities available to a new generation of potential trainees within the profession. He said: “Economic rebuilding will create opportunities, particularly in finance and leadership roles. We believe that Chartered Accountancy training is the best possible business education and is more flexible than ever before, creating great opportunities for those seeking to train, whether they are a school-leaver or an experienced business professional.” Mr Henry, who takes over as President from Conall O’Halloran, is a Director with Belfast based property consultancy Osborne King and has extensive experience of real estate, insolvency and corporate finance. A resident of Belfast, Mr Henry qualified with Pricewaterhouse in 1989. Prior to his current role, he held positions with the Industrial Development Board, Enterprise Equity, PricewaterhouseCoopers and ASM Chartered Accountants.  He also served as Chairman of Chartered Accountants Ulster Society in 2014.
