Alan Dickinson DipPFS
Wealth Management Adviser
I am one of the UK’s most experienced Independent Financial Advisers serving the needs of the UK’s Gay, Lesbian and Civil Partners.
I started my career in the City in 1989 working for one of the UK’s leading Merchant Banks, in their Private Client Division. Saddened by the homophobia of the city at the time and the discrimination faced by the Gay and Lesbian community in relation to everyday financial products, I left the City for Soho in 1996 to become one the most senior advisers at Massow Financial Services. This company was the first to provide advice to the Gay and Lesbian Community, as well as people living with HIV. In a relatively short time Massow Financial Services became the 10th largest IFA in the UK.
Years of campaigning and lobbying culminated in the outlawing of discrimination and the introduction of civil partnerships and in 2006 I returned to the City and joined Helm Godfrey. With my unique experience I now offer a holistic, creative and innovative approach to financial planning for everyone. To me “thinking out of the box” is the norm.
In my spare time, I cycle, play badminton and am the treasurer of a Gay and Lesbian sports club.
