Retrial date set for CHC portfolio manager

Ciara Kelleher will face new trial in 2025 after jury failed to agree verdict in fraud case

Ciara Kelleher (51), who was senior portfolio relationship manager at the collapsed Custom House Capital group, will face a retrial in 2025 after a jury failed to reach a verdict on a fraud charge she faced earlier this month.

Ms Kelleher, of Blackhorse Avenue in Dublin 7, pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiring with others to defraud investors, clients and customers of Custom House Capital Ltd by intentionally misleading them as to where or how their assets had been placed in the investment firm.

The offence is alleged to have happened within the State on dates between October 2008 and July 2011.

Judge Martin Nolan set a date of January 13th, 2025 for the retrial.
