Often referred to as ‘Alan the Accountant’, he encompasses a unique combination of thorough financial reporting expertise in the alternative assets industry coupled with a natural drive to understand and accommodate the needs of fund promoters and investors.
As an example of the Group’s focus on replicating our alternative approach, after four years at the Group, Alan set up our onshore presence in Southampton and has been key to raising awareness of the Group’s fund and corporate services across the UK and Europe.
Whether it’s regaining the confidence of clients migrating to us due to previously poor service provision or setting up operations in a new jurisdiction, Alan doesn’t shy away from getting down to the nitty-gritty. Describing the Group’s and his own professional focus, Alan explains “We always work together with our clients to address their requirements, find solutions to administrative complexities and reduce unnecessary stress to make their lives easier. In my mind, this is the ultimate role of an outsourced solutions partner and this is what everyone at Aztec always strives for.”
“Alan is always the one to figure out solutions no matter how complex the problem is; his determination enables him to find a way. Although his enthusiasm shows during occasional presentations to the industry, unless you have worked alongside him, you won’t truly appreciate his drive.” – Pete Blackburn, Associate Director
Alan is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and a member of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA). He also holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from University of Edinburgh.
