Alex McGothigan

Alex McGothigan

Financial Planner
Alex has worked in the Financial Services since March 1979. He started his career with the Wesleyan, who are still one of the top UK companies in the industry, followed by a short time with Abbey Life. His main aim was always to provide his clients with the best possible advice, this could not be achieved by working for any specific company so AMG was founded in June 1997. Alex had always a keen interest in property renovation, rental and sales, so together with his son Daniel they purchased an Estate Agency Business in 2009 and have since established a maintenance company.
