Alexander Money has been created as a portal to showcase ideas and products available to today’s investor. This might be through the form of investing via a pension or as a cash purchase. We act only as an introducer to the provider of these products but we will of course provide full information about any of these products. We are a UK based business with offices in Cheshire and Scotland. In fact many of the asset classes you will see on the web site are built and based in the UK.

Overview of investments in a pension

If you are looking to set up a SIPP (self invested personal pension) then you will have a say directly into how your pension fund is invested. You would have the choice of investing in myriad assets. These asset classes can include commercial property in the form of car parking, buy to let property including hotel rooms, self store units, listed property and gold. In fact the list is too long to list on this page. Suffice to say that there should be something for anyone. What we do on our site is to make people aware of what may be available to them subject to taking suitable advice and the status of the individual. The vast majority of pension funds run by the high street providers lose money year on year in real terms. That is to say they return less than the rate of inflation. Add to that often excessive charges and it is no surprise that people’s retirement income is often not enough to sustain them in retirement. There are alternatives out there which represent genuine choice and more importantly a real chance of beating inflation and providing a sensible income in retirement.

Overview for cash buyers

It is well within living memory that interest rates for savers were over 10%. That figure seems unattainable for many nowadays: at least in their lifetimes. More common would be interest rates at around 1-2%. With inflation currently running at around 3% this means that money in the bank is decreasing in value. Because of economic turmoil, the last few years has seen the unthinkable. A run on the banks in developed countries. Many people have lump sums on deposit with their bank or building society earning very little interest. There are alternative investments available which can show returns of over 10% per annum. These investments include gold, hotel rooms operated by Holiday Inn, Hilton and Hyatt, farmland, storage and car parking.

In 1999 gold stood at $300 dollars an ounce. Today it is around $1600 an ounce. Did your bank match that? Source

In 2006 arable UK farmland stood at £250 per acre and in 2013 stands at £700 per acre with Savills forecasting a further 40% increase over the next 5 years. Source

Hyatt, Holiday Inn and most international hotel chains are now available for private investors to buy into from as little as £20,000. The hotel operator returns half of the nightly room rate to the investment fund or more in some cases. Think about that. Your money being actively employed and managed by an international hotel chain.


We have recognised that there is a craving by investors to get a better return on their money and savings. All we have done is to pull together thoughts and ideas from around the world to show what is available. We have looked at hundreds of potential investments and showcase ones that we like. Please let us know if you have seen others that we might showcase as well. All we ask is that you browse the site for ideas and for information. Please contact us for more information about products including prices and forecast returns. Then it is up to you to think about where your money is currently held and how it is performing. If you are not happy about your current rate of returns then perhaps the time has come to do something about it.
