As a Director within our Governance, Risk and Assurance department, Alex manages our family office sector team whilst also being heavily involved in our financial services and shipping sectors. With 12 years’ experience working in his chosen sectors, Alex advises on issues such as risk management (including SOX advisory), performance measurement, internal control over financial reporting, financial reporting under IFRS and US GAAP, valuation and custody benchmarking. Alex has helped clients establish robust control environments and often assists management in their monitoring and testing to ensure clear, transparent and responsible reporting. He has an accounting background and has worked as an external auditor, so has the ability to see things from the client’s perspective rather than an outsider looking in.

Alex has significant experience of dealing with the needs of ultra-high-net-wealth individuals as well as developing their businesses and understands how to help them manage their financial affairs. He also has significant experience dealing with a variety of investment fund structures and the demands that these present.

Alex trained with Moore Stephens and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland. Having had a short break from the firm, Alex returned in 2012 and has been with us for a total of ten years.
