Alan leads the marketing and digital development function at Hoxton Capital Management, 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 Management 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.

The Japanese index had its highest close since 1990, due to the upcoming elections but also because more than 50% of the Japanese population has now been vaccinated, after having started behind all other countries.September 20, 2021

Risk markets once again attempted to correct but the net result over the last week was fairly small. The ostensible concern driving the downdraft in equities right now is about slower growth with potentially less support from the Fed due to tapering. UK, US and European equities were hit most, whereas Asian equities, which had suffered previously, were quite resilient this time round, with Japanese equities actually soaring. The Japanese market bucked the trend due to expectations of a stimulus package after the upcoming election. In terms of sectors, consumer discretionary was the most defensive, whereas healthcare, real estate and utilities corrected the most.September 13, 2021
The effect of inflation is a subject that is covered extensively and well understood by most. This, however, does not seem to perturb people from sitting on cash. A recent analysis by Hoxton Capital revealed that on average professionals over 40 were maintaining a cash float of £100,000. With inflationary pressure impacting almost all markets, cash savings are likely to be heavily impacted.September 8, 2021
