Spotlight on Alex, Client Support Technician

As financial planners, Fortitude Financial Planning take the time to understand you. When you work with them you’ll be dealing with real people, whether it’s over the phone or face to face.

So, it seems only fair that you get to know them in return. Starting with Alex Allcock-Rouse, client support technician, they will be spotlighting the team over the coming months.

Here’s what he had to say:

“Hi Alex! Describe the kind of work you do in three words.”

“Technical, compliance, reviews.”

Very succinct.

“What’s been your proudest moment at Fortitude Financial Planning to date?”
“I would say definitely my Investment Committee and Compliance work.”

“What keeps you smiling at work every day?”
“Coffee. Good coffee!”

“And what keeps you busy when you’re not working?”
“Where do I begin? The Pensions Ombudsman. I have a soft spot for cars and car maintenance. Other than that I enjoy dining out, listening to and playing music, church, gardening, and spending time in the Cotswolds.”

“You certainly know how to keep busy! Let’s do three quick-fire questions.”

“Tell us the quote or phrase that goes through life with you.”
“How hard can it be?”

“Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?”

“It has to be Tangier, Morocco.”

“Who is your hero and why?”
“Alfred the Great, clever, great leader, tactician, dedication to his life’s work.”

“And finally, if you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?”
“Focus more on work-life balance. And also, make it happen – whatever ‘it’ is.”
