It’s not just theft and cloning of your credit card that you need to guard against when you have credit. You also need to guard against your own misuse of your credit and store cards. Veritas Wealth founder Barry O’Mahony looks at some common (and costly misconceptions), as well as mistakes we make when spending on credit.Read More
So, what’s going on in an investment world disrupted by the pandemic? Veritas Wealth founder Barry O’Mahony analyses how markets and asset managers have been impacted by the pandemic and how we are responding by increasing the allocation in our portfolios to value-style investing.Read More
The old cliché that history tends to repeat itself certainly has a ring of truth about it. Wars end, followed by booms, then crashes, uprisings, pandemics, breakthroughs, more booms, and so the cycle seems to repeat itself in varying order. But the question that does seem to pop up after a terrible event is what lessons we’ve actually learned. A US columnist and author has surveyed history and come up with a surprising answer.Read More

What Our Clients Are Saying:
I have known Barry for years and joined Veritas as a client quite a few years ago. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. One should leave financial planning to the professionals!
Vicky and I would just like to thank you for all your advice guidance and contacts over the years and we are very grateful that you allow us to still be clients despite not meeting the financial criteria.
Congratulations on your continued success and you are a great bloke whose down to earth and candid approach is real breath of fresh air.
Our session with Rick yesterday was particularly heartening, given the stage in life that Lindy and I now find ourselves. Rick’s guidance on all of this has been absolutely invaluable and we really do appreciate the service he has provided.
Appreciate your time this morning and great to have you around helping us (and the family) get everything structured correctly.
Thanks again for what you do for me. You are a pillar of strength in very turbulent waters at the moment with this retirement thing looming large.
Many thanks – you are very efficient and have been a pleasure to deal with.
Just a big thanks for the professional financial plan Barry left with us this morning. We know we don’t have to read it but will do in a quiet moment to see how things should be done. It is a pleasure dealing with you.
Just wanted to say thank you for all your advice and guidance, especially as we are not a big client. It is really refreshing to meet someone so honest, professional and personable.
I would like to express again my appreciation to you both, for just being there for me at all times this year, Clare and Barry.
You, both have “held” us so sensitively and yet have firmly grounded us through the difficult issues which have presented themselves.
I am enormously grateful to you.
We have come a long way this year in consolidating our financial affairs in a positive way and I look forward to simplifying and tying the ” loose threads” even more next year! Thank you!
Clare, you and Barry both gave me such confidence at our meeting with your superb combination of efficiency and caring. To date my way of only taking everything one “time bite” at a time has served me well. Just staying in the present and focussing on what is happening right now is very therapeutic for me.
Their detailed plan was presented and although we retired only 18 months later, in the interim the Veritas team continued updating our plan through several meetings. Months later and happily retired we reflected on the things that Veritas provided us:
– Clarity and lucidity of all the advice
– Advice was just that, never hard-sell and always focused on our best interests
– Planning is focused on personal needs and engenders a high level of trust
– Veritas brought knowledge and specialist expertise without which we could not have made this transition
Dear Barry, Chris was immensely fond of you and had high respect for you and your company which he regarded as a model for other organisations. I am so thankful to have Veritas covering my back at this extremely difficult time!
With very best wishes.
Barry, a special note of gratitude to you for all your concern for our welfare over the years. Your advice has always been cheerfully, thoughtfully, and unselfishly given.
We have always looked forward to our meetings and I hope that our relationship continues as we head towards retirement.
