Do you have any events coming up or current projects you can share with us?

Rebecca Netten – “Always! MAC is a fast-moving company.  We maintain a consistent approach for our clients but we continuously look at how we can change to improve services for our clients behind the scenes.  As many companies did, we too took on the great digital revolution from Covid and this has kick started a number of projects we were quietly working on.  We’re looking forward to sharing the first of these project with you in the coming months which will bring a great benefit to our corporate clients.”

Ed Walter – “We have just completed a re-vamp of our offices to improve the private client experience of visiting MAC and our team has grown substantially in the last year to accommodate our business growth.  One of the projects we can share with you at the moment, is the growth of the MAC Academy.  The Isle of Man has fantastic career opportunities and we are hoping to enhance that for those seeking a career in finance.  We have restructured MAC to allow for total progression from pre-qualified finance fans through to experienced IFAs, heads of departments and directors.  The MAC Academy however doesn’t just aim to help those that are wanting a career in finance but we are building financial education to suit those at all levels of money knowledge. It’s quite an exciting development and we hope to be completing and advertising the opportunities soon.
