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.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic UK house prices were on the rise in 2020, can it continue into 2021?
2020 has proved to be the best year for the UK housing market – in terms of activity at least – in a long time. House prices hit new record highs and saw their strongest growth for years, as measured by any house-price index you cared to use, from the mortgage-tracking indices of Halifax (up 7.6% in the year to November) and Nationwide (up 6.5%), to the detailed transaction data of the Office for National Statistics (up 5.4% to October), or even the rather more nebulous “asking-price” data from Rightmove (up 6.6% to December).January 14, 2021
Following on from a volatile year and with more volatility potentially on the horizon, Hoxton has sought to source options for investors who are looking to reduce their exposure to equities whilst still achieving a respectable level of growth. With so much in the market, filtering through alternative investments to find options that satisfy our strict requirements was an arduous task. After much deliberation and due diligence, we are happy to present a couple of options we believe tick all the boxes.January 13, 2021
The week was highly eventful in US politics. Although not yet officially declared, the Democrats won the Georgia runoff elections giving President-Elect Biden the slimmest of majorities in the US Senate as well as the House of Representatives. On Wednesday, the riots on Capitol Hill shocked the world but did not prevent the Senate from confirming Biden’s election as President.January 11, 2021
Welcome to a new year. We hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year, or at least celebrated as best they could given the circumstances we are in.
With a bit of luck, this year will be a more precedented one than an unprecedented one, and we will all see a return to the normality that has been gone for so long.January 6, 2021
