It is one of our beliefs at Monetary Solutions that there should be more females in our sector. Alice joined us in 2014 as an apprentice and is now one of our Administrators.

After spending 28 years in the United States and Canada as a Flat Jockey, Andy returned to the UK looking for a change in lifestyle and ready for a new career. His life experience is proving extremely useful in his position as an administrator, translating well into the skills needed to support the advisers and their clients.
