Who we are

We’re a friendly, family-run financial planning firm, with traditional values and many years of experience.

Based in Stonehaven, Scotland, the firm was first set up in 1979 by Andrew McIlraith with the full title of Andrew McIlraith Life and Pensions. Angus Mackintosh joined the firm in 1996 and after a management buy out in 2011, became Managing Director. At this point, the firm rebranded as AMLP Financial Planning Ltd. Coincidentally, with Angus having the same initials as Andrew, this worked well! It also fits with our belief in the importance of history and continuity, which is fundamental to much of our estate planning work.

Angus is a Chartered member of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment, which is a prestigious qualification and testament to his skills and experience. It is also a sign of commitment to the high standards we hold here.

Our personable, approachable team pride themselves on looking after you and your family throughout the generations. We want to set you in the right direction to achieve the most from your finances so that you can live the life you really want.

Our clients are at the heart of all we do and we put great emphasis on providing a personal, tailored service. For this reason, we have a limited number of clients and deliberately keep it that way so that we can deliver the quality of work they have come to expect from us. We are entrusted with a lot of money, a responsibility which we take very seriously. Our clear and transparent fee structure, with its itemised menu of services, means you always know exactly what you are paying for.
