Alan heads up the marketing and digital development function at Hoxton Capital, bringing with him two decades of experience in associated roles. He has worked within the international financial advisory industry for 14 years, having left the UK initially to take up a junior role with a brokerage in Frankfurt, Germany. Subsequently Alan was integral to the formation and growth of Forth Capital in Geneva, Switzerland, driving new client acquisition through early adoption of modern and highly effective marketing and communications methods.
Having returned to the UK in 2012 to take up a role with a start-up specialist marketing consultancy, Alan co-founded and launch the independent expat resource website www.expertsforexpats.com, before going back overseas in 2014 to take up a senior Marketing and Business Development Director role back at Forth Capital, basing himself in Dubai. During his second spell at Forth Capital, Alan continued to develop the firm’s multi-channel marketing and client service communications, whilst also taking project lead on several other development and tech projects at the firm.
Alan joined Hoxton Capital in Abu Dhabi in November 2018 to create industry change, sharing the founders’ vision for building a truly different proposition for both investors and advisers.
Outside of business, Alan is a keen distance runner and cites the determination required to have completed many marathons in his time as demonstrative of his continuous commitment to deliver to our clients on the promise and expectation of high calibre service.
Alan has achieved Level 4 qualified financial adviser status and gained a CIM marketing diploma whilst in the UK.
