At Acorn Life we specialise in taking ambitious people from non-sales backgrounds and transforming them into confident, professional financial advisors. Headquartered in Galway, Acorn Life is a 100% Irish owned Life Assurance Company and a leading provider of protection, savings and investment products to the Irish public. Acorn Life was the first life assurance company to obtain the "Guaranteed Irish" accreditation, Ireland’s most trusted and recognised symbol for Irish manufactured goods and services. Acorn Life are proud recipients of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Award for 2017.

At the end of 2016, Acorn Life had total assets under management of €709 million and premium income for 2016 was €123 million.

Our mission is to "empower ordinary people to achieve extraordinary results". Our commitment to our staff and agents and the opportunities we give them ensure that they are deeply committed to delivering high quality products and service to our clients.


Our aim is to enable our employees to achieve their full potential by working in a dynamic and progressive company that rewards ambition and achievement. Our culture is based on innovation, initiative, enthusiasm and teamwork. We are totally committed to providing high quality products and services to our customers.


At Acorn Life we believe that the company is as good as the people who work for it and as those same people develop so too will the company. Our culture within Acorn Life therefore is one of individual accountability and self-improvement. There is much about Acorn Life that is unique - its genesis; its Galway based Head Office; the efficiency of its administration and the performance of its unit linked managed funds. In a very real sense therefore everybody is a team player and an environment is created where the client benefits most of all.
