Conexim Founders

Conexim was founded by four individuals with diverse backgrounds in the financial services industry, who all have a passion for the industry and all with a common goal – to set-up a risk responsive and cost effective solution to assist intermediaries and their clients in growing their portfolios.

Bill Casey – Director of Financial Planning.
Bill is a CFP Professional, a QFA and an AITI chartered tax advisor (CTA). Bill has worked for a number of institutions over the last 20 years in the life and pensions industry as well as the stockbroking sector. Bill’s talent lies in assisting intermediaries and clients in establishing a true picture of a clients risk appetite and aligning this with asset allocation and asset selection within clients portfolios. Bill’s main driver for establishing Conexim was to be able to provide best in class self-directed pensions options across all asset classes.

Colm Daly – Director of Trading
Colm is a Qualified Financial Advisor and a Registered Stockbroker, and has worked as a stockbroker for over 20 years. Colm is primarily responsible for the trading function in the firm and the relationships with 3rd party providers of services. Colm’s main driver for establishing Conexim was borne from the frustration of working for commission driven stockbroking firms which he felt did not focus on growing Client portfolios in a slow and steady manner. Colm also saw no reason why private clients shouldn’t have options to access institutional execution rates of 5 basis points, and that is now what we deliver.

Ronan Gahan – Director of Risk and Compliance
Ronan is a Qualified Financial Advisor and a Licentiate of the Association of Compliance Officers in Ireland. Ronan has spent the last 18 years specialising in assisting companies in their establishment and start-up phases in Ireland, UK, Germany, Denmark, Hungary and the USA, and for the last 6 years has worked exclusively with Financial Services firms where he has assisted a number of domestic and overseas firms with compliance and risk management services. Ronan is a big believer in Risk Management at every level of the firm and was instrumental in establishing the firms systems for managing compliance and risk as well as developing tools for the rest of the team to manage client side risk in portfolios.

Justin Turner – Director of Operations and Finance
Justin holds a Certificate in Stockbroking, and has significant experience in back and middle office operations, having worked for both larger US firms and smaller domestic firms in Dublin and Belfast. What Justin doesn’t know about clearing and settlement systems isn’t worth knowing, and no matter what sort of odd holding comes in the door, Justin can get it dematerialised and onto our platform! Justin heads up the admin functions for the firm and is the key person responsible for the smooth running of our operations and reporting systems.
