Deloitte Best Managed Companies 2019

Acorn Life announced as one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies for the 3rd Year in a Row

Acorn Life, a 100% Irish owned Life Assurance Company providing protection, pensions, savings and investment solutions to the Irish public, was recently announced as a third time recipient of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies (BMC) Award. The company was recognised at a gala awards dinner in Dublin on 1 March 2019.

The Deloitte BMC Awards are lauded as one of the most prestigious awards in the country, recognising Irish companies operating at the highest levels of business performance. The Deloitte Best Managed designation is a symbol of Irish corporate success and recognises companies that are focused on their core vision, create stakeholder value, excel in all areas of their business, and celebrate the contribution of the entire organisation. In total 136 companies were recognised as Best Managed Companies and have a combined turnover of over €11 billion.

Anya Cummins, Partner, Deloitte said: “Well done to all of the winning companies on their achievement. The Best Managed Companies process is a rigorous one, examining every facet of an organisation, and the bar is set high by our judging panel. As ever, the spread of companies, right around the country and across a number of industries, underlines the importance of Irish and Northern Irish companies to the economy and in the midst of economic uncertainty, technology disruption, an open competitive market and full employment, the continued strong performance of these businesses is admirable. In the current environment, it is important for this contribution to be recognised, supported and showcased.”

Speaking of their win Paddy Byrne, CEO, Acorn Life, “We are both proud and honoured to be the only life assurance company in Ireland to win this award. This achievement comes as a result of the tireless work of our staff and the people that make up our financial advisor network throughout the country. Day in day out, it’s these people that make our company what it is. To them, we would like to say a very heartfelt thank you. We would also like to thank our clients for their continued support – without whom we would not be the company we are today”. Paddy concluded by focusing on Acorn Life’s financials, “From humble beginnings over 30 years ago, Acorn Life has grown into a company with over 250 staff and financial advisors, assets under management of €698 million at the end of 2018 and premium income of €118 million during the year. Our success is built on providing financial advice through long term relationships in local communities".
