Finance Dublin and its special publications

Finance Dublin is the industry journal and website dedicated to Ireland's financial services industry, one of the principal export pillars of Ireland's economy. Independent of the industry and Government, it provides a 'fourth estate' to the IFS industry. It informs and updates readers on the companies, decisionmakers and views of the thought leaders working in Ireland's financial services industry, one of the most dynamic financial centres in the world.

The Irish Tax Monitor a rich harvest for commentary on Tax, is published every month in Finance Dublin. The Irish Tax Monitor delivers a focus on tax advice, delivered by leading professional writers in the tax field in Ireland.

History: the print publication, Finance Dublin was merged with Finance Magazine in 2009, continuing the continuous monthly analysis of finance in Ireland provided since June 1987, when the first issue of Finance Magazine was published. Finance Dublin was established in 1996, as a consequence of the growing IFSC content of Finance Magazine which was first published in June 1987.

Fintel's Global Financial Centres (GFC) Conferences have been seminal, as have its conferences on securitisation and debt capital markets, having been one of the very first forums in the world to bring attention to anomalous pricing issues in the run up to the global financial crisis (2006). It also has been credited with being the first publication to seriously question pricing levels in the Irish housing market (in 2000, and before). Its publication Aviation Finance, established in 2011, is a leading aviation finance industry publication, serving one of the most global of industries.


Our mission in advertising is to deliver information to readers from advertisers that helps their search for better value, recognising that every transaction, whether social or commercial, involves search costs. The monetary price of a good usually isn’t a measure of how much a customer has spent on it, nor does it accurately reflect what the producer received. The customer pays the monetary cost plus search costs, which can take the form of consumer research, product assessment and social validation. Sometimes these costs are monetary, but more often they involve time, effort and anxiety, and is is this which ultimately we seek to resolve through our advertising and sponsorship services.

Editorial and Research

We are committed to balanced discourse in ideas, promoting inclusion and tolerance of the differing perspectives on the major stories of global finance and their effect on financial centres such as Ireland. We seek to publish evidence based and objective information, taking note of Francis Bacon's observation: "It cannot be that axioms established by argumentation can suffice for the discovery of new works, for the subtilty of nature exceedeth many times over the subtilty of argument" ( Francis Bacon, Novum Organon).

Although Finance Dublin has been variously described as a 'flagship' of the IFSC and indeed its 'bible', it is an independent commercial publication, published by Fintel Ltd. It seeks to provide an all inclusive forum for the expression of differing perspectives, and to reflect the unique contributions of all stakeholders in the industry.

In publishing content relating to quoted securities, Fintel and its employees subscribe to a voluntary code of conduct which includes recognition of the principles relating to publications and publishing organisations in the European Union's MIFID ('The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive' - 2004/39/EC).
