Our purpose is to help you make the most of the opportunities in our rapidly changing industry.

In a fluctuating landscape of consolidation, digitisation, shrinking margins, and automation, Alpha helps asset and wealth managers think smarter and shape their business for the future. When your clients’ demands become more complicated, we help you work more effectively. Where your rivals look to outcompete you, we’ll help you achieve the reverse.

To achieve your goals our principles are:

Advice must be actionable.

Rather than endless PowerPoints or theorising, our priority is practical advice you can use straight away. We’re strategic thinkers who focus on solutions that immediately benefit your business.

The answer is never the same.

What’s right for your business must be unique. We’re adept at adapting the proven and the innovative to solve your particular challenges.

Global shouldn’t mean remote.

We believe working with you means being in the same room. With consultants in all the major financial centres, we can be with you whenever you need our local expertise and global insight.

There’s no room for ego.

We work well as a team because we like each other, and we like what we do. There are no egos involved, we share knowledge and believe good ideas can come from anywhere. We’re genuinely excited by the challenges our clients set us.

Everything we do must add value.

In times of unprecedented change, it’s easy to do something for the sake of it or because everyone else is doing it. If we can’t see how it adds value to your business, we’ll tell you.

We have experts in every area of consulting for asset and wealth management, and we’re constantly keeping their skills at the very forefront of industry development.
