254. Ciara Hurley – Reflecting on a Career in Private Wealth and “Perspective” for the Next Stage

Ciara Hurley is an investment committee member at the Trinity College Dublin Endowment. Ciara recently retired from Quilter Cheviot, where she was a financial advisor for over 20 years.  She has worked as a portfolio manager, as well as serving in various director and Board roles.

Our conversation charts both Ciara’s career and the evolution of wealth management in Ireland over that 30 year period. We discuss how she developed her own identity and risk tolerance as a financial advisor, and the way that she encouraged clients to “walk with her” during turbulent market conditions to ensure that their portfolios were resilient.

We conclude by discussing Ciara’s next chapter now, post retirement, which will involve a lot of travel and pursuit of her love of art and art history in particular.  We speak about what she has learned from studying this area and the enhanced perspective and insight it provides.
