On match days Highwood allows members of Watford FC’s President’s Club to park in our private car park in exchange for a donation to their chosen charity. Highwood are delighted that in its fourth year this scheme has raised a further £2,750 for Peace Hospice Care, including a generous donation from the Partners of the firm. John Helfgott, Partner at Highwood, is pictured handing over a cheque to Joanna Milton, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Peace Hospice Care.
Since this scheme started in 2013, Highwood have raised £10,000 for the charity.
As soon as we met Michael Gould of Highwood we felt confident that we could trust him as a financial adviser. He gives us sound advice; we receive excellent service from his team and we have been delighted with the performance of our portfolio. We have recommended Highwood to our family, friends and clients, all of whom are equally pleased.
My husband and I have been with Highwood for three years. After our previous experiences with financial advisers, it was an enormous relief to find someone who explains everything in language we understand, who sets out the detail of our investments and importantly any charges incurred in a transparent way, and who always responds quickly to any queries we have. We came to Highwood at a time when we had to sort out my mother’s estate and had lots of decisions to make. Michael ‘held our hand’ through the process, and helped to clarify the options we had, and made it all feel much less daunting. We would (and do) highly recommend Highwood.
