Although Lodge Financial Advice is a new name to you we have been providing financial solutions for our clients from this office in Coleraine since 1995.

We are proud that our business has grown through recommendations and referrals and we all have the pleasure of advising several generations within our clients families. This is due to our focus in putting clients at the center of everything we do.

Our Values

We all work here because we enjoy what we do. Our Shared values and respect for one another lead to a great working environment where trust, honesty, respect and integrity are at the forefront of the way we work.

We also believe we have something to offer those less fortunate than us so we spend time as volunteers at Waakisa Ministries in Uganda and Holley Memorial Hospital in Nigeria as well as donating a percentage of our profits to charity.
