The Beginning, A Partnership Based on Sharing Skills and Experience

Frank Investments was founded in 2005, born out of the desire to protect generational wealth and to share the founders’ skill and experience with others. In 2000 Paul Barry-Walsh’s business SafetyNet was sold, providing him with sufficient capital to start considering his investment options. Barry-Walsh discussed what he would do next with his friend and investment professional Paul Sedgwick. They began to consider legacy; where it starts, how it lasts, and what is required to truly leave a mark.

Paul Sedgwick left the city to further this mission with Paul Barry-Walsh and Frank Investments was formed. They wanted to create an ethos with transparency at its core, and put people first and foremost.
