After joining Nicola Wealth Management in 2013 as a Portfolio Trader, Alan is now an up and coming advisor on the Nicola Wealth Planning Team.

Prior to joining Nicola Wealth, Alan worked in the corporate trust department of a worldwide banking and financial services holding company.

Alan genuinely enjoys getting to know his clients and prides himself on the level of service he provides as he refines his integrated planning expertise.

Initially earning a Masters of Business Studies (MBS), Alan has also secured the CIM designation.
