Providing advice upon, implementation and ongoing management of Employee Benefit Schemes for small to medium sized groups.
In November 2014 following the merger of Alexander Beard Group's International Employee Benefits Division with Netherlands based Bogaard Pensioen B.V. the division was re-named as Alexander Beard International Benefits B.V.
The UK arm (Alexander Beard Group's International Employee Benefits Division) was launched in November 2006 providing advice on all aspects of employee benefits with a particular specialisation in foreign companies who have groups of employees in the UK and Europe.
The Dutch arm (Bogaard Pensioen B.V) was founded by Max Bogaard in 2001 and in 2004 he was joined by his son Bram, who became Managing Director-Europe after the merger and Max joined the main board of Alexander Beard.
The business is regulated by the Dutch authorities and they have given permission under the E.U. cross border passporting rules for the company to have a branch licence in the UK in order to incorporate and maintain the existing activities of the UK business.
Unlike some of our larger competitors, our fee based proposition is to offer and maintain a high level of individual service not only to our corporate clients but also to their individual staff members. An integral part of our employee benefits packages is to offer every member of staff a face to face meeting with one of our Financial Planning Consultants to discuss their individual financial planning needs.
In 2013 we launched our Flexible Benefits portal StaffChoice. This provides a range of online flexible benefit choices which are often tax efficient for both the employer and the employee, not only reducing employer costs of administration but also enhancing the employer reputation with its staff.
We now number amongst our clients many of the worlds’ leading Silicon Valley headquartered IT, multimedia and Biotech companies.
