Why We Are Different
Alexander Grace was established in 2001. Based in Meriden, Warwickshire, Alexander Grace is now firmly positioned as a premier provider of independent financial advice to both private clients and corporate clients. We understand the major financial decisions you make will have significant and life-changing consequences for you and the people around you. It is, therefore, essential that you seek professional independent financial advice from people you can trust.
Get To Know You
All clients have different needs and aspirations. We get to know our clients and not just stick to one procedure to design recommendations. Whilst the theme is often similar, all client plans will be individually tailored. Also, we will revise our plan if clients wish.
Don’t Overcomplicate Plans
We do not look to overcomplicate clients’ Financial Plans. This does not mean that we compromise on a spread of quality assets, and we always ensure our client has sufficient ready access money.
Experienced People Who Care
The people at Alexander Grace are highly experienced and we take a lot of care and time to ensure that we are trained and competent in what we do. Achieving further qualification is encouraged for all of us and we all smile a lot!
Gold Standard Award
We have recently been awarded the prestigious Chartered Financial Planners designation by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) – one of around 650 firms out of approximately 10,000 in the UK. This is the industry’s gold standard for firms of financial planners. It confirms that we have satisfied rigorous qualification criteria by retaining highly-qualified staff who subscribe to the membership conditions of the Cll. It also involves a commitment to continuing professional development and adherence to an industry standard Code of Ethics.
Our recommendations are always written in a straightforward manner and will usually provide a summary of the main points. We will explain the recommendations we make and why we have made them as we really want clients to understand, not necessarily the full detail, but certainly the risks and why we feel action should be taken.
No Financial Bias
We are remunerated by way of a fee and these are utterly transparent as we have a straightforward fee structure dependent upon the work we do. There Is absolutely no financial bias towards any one product or provider.
Honesty And Integrity
We will go the extra mile for clients who need us to. Honesty and integrity are central to the way we work and we have many checks and balances to ensure things don’t go wrong. We ensure providers stick to what they promise and encourage clients to get us to sort out any problems they may have with organisations.
We will visit you if appropriate at home, work or other suitable places, or you are welcome to meet us at our lovely converted Barn location which is easy to get to and there is easy parking. We will even pick clients up from Birmingham International Station.

AG have been our financial advisers for nearly 20 years, during that time we have found their advice invaluable, with regular personal reviews taking into account changing needs, supported by clear written comprehensive reports, with amendments or recommendations personally explained. The Client Team are very efficient, easy to talk to and quick in responding to any queries or making follow up appointments. Neil and Angela have provided us with plain good old fashioned personal service, the sort not easy to find in the corporate world.Keith and Gaynor Lea
I was recommended to this firm nearly three years’ ago when looking for specialist advice on transferring my defined benefit pension scheme. Being naturally cautious and aware of warnings to avoid sharp operators in this market I approached discussion with understandable prudence and trepidation. What struck me immediately was the ethos of calm professionalism, assured knowledge and utmost integrity of everyone I spoke to at the company. At no time did I feel pressured or rushed into making decisions. Rather, I was encouraged to question and fully consider all aspects of what is a very complex matter with far-reaching life implications. I have continued to be impressed with the standards of care and professionalism in all aspects of their service and the efficiency and friendliness of my Financial Advisor, Karen Pizey.Peter Whitehouse
