Alan Corkill

Senior Administrator

Alan was educated in the Isle of Man before studying Law at Liverpool University.

Returning to the Island, Alan has accumulated over 25 years of wide and varied experience in the financial services sector having worked for four international Banks and their local Trust/Fiduciary Services operations, including a period of 11 years as Company Secretary of HSBC Trustee (Isle of Man) Limited.

An Associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers having qualified in 1991, Alan also holds the Financial Planning Certificate.

Alan has also studied for a number of other qualifications that must have seemed like a very good idea at the time.

Locking one of my previous managers in the bank safe on Christmas eve. He had to call the MD to come down and let him out – fortunately the MD’s mother in law was in residence so he was glad of the excuse to pop out.

Better not answer that one!
