Who is Avant Money?

Since 1997, our team has been delivering market-leading credit products to the people of Ireland.
We have been delivering the best credit products to Ireland for over twenty years. Originally as MBNA and more recently as Avantcard. Now, we are excited to bring excellent value mortgages to homeowners in Ireland under our new name, Avant Money.

At Avant Money, our people are local; they understand our customers having taken great care of them since 1997. We also have the financial strength of our parent company, Bankinter, behind us.

Our ambition is to offer customers a full suite of lending options where, when and how they want them; our five core values drive everything we do and how we do it:

Simplicity - We are easy to do business with by keeping things simple.
Teamwork - We’re one team where collective success is more important than individual glory.
Caring - We care about our colleagues, our customers and our communities.
Trust - We build trust through our conduct, our transparency and our integrity.
Daring - We challenge the norm and dare to be different.

Our relationship with many of our customers has lasted for decades and that is a testament to not only offering great products, but by also delivering a warm and personal, yet efficient service.

Backed by one of Spain’s leading banks.
Established in 1965, Bankinter ranks fifth amongst Spanish banks by market capitalisation and is one of the most solvent, sound and profitable financial institutions in Spain.

Bankinter also operates in Portugal and Luxembourg through different lines of business in retail banking, private banking, corporate banking and consumer finance.


Our People

“Our people are our greatest asset, and we benefit enormously from having such a talented and motivated workforce.” Chris Paul, CEO.
This is reflected in the many awards the team has won over the last few years, from being recognised as a Great Place To Work®, a hat trick of Credit Team of the Year awards, along with Contact Centre of the Year (medium-sized company) for two years in a row awarded by the Customer Contact Management Association (CCMA).

In 2020, we also celebrated the power of equality in the workplace with 19 other companies who all joined the Great Place To Work list of ‘Best Workplaces for Women’.

Our people are the cornerstone of the business. With over 250 employees across its two sites in Carrick-on-Shannon and Dublin, Avant Money offers exciting career opportunities and best in class benefits for employees across a broad range of disciplines.


Our Community

Positively impacting the communities in which we live and work is hugely important to us.
At Avant Money, our staff work together to help a broad range of both local and national charities.

We aim to support at least 30 charities and organisations each year whilst continuing to work alongside The Society of St. Vincent de Paul and North West Hospice with whom we have long-standing relationships spanning several years.
