Former England football and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer has reached an out of court settlement with his financial advisor, Mr Neal, after claiming he was given negligent financial advice. Although the terms of the settlement are confidential the claim brought by Shearer was centred on his pension worth around four million pounds. While Shearer described the advice given as “careless” and “dishonest”, Mr Neal stated the claim brought against him was motivated by “ego and greed”.
