The partners and staff of Highwood take their corporate and social responsibilities (CSR) seriously and are committed to ensure that CSR impacts on all aspects of their business. This includes ethical behaviour, concern for employee health and safety, care for the environment and community relationships.
Support of the local community is highly important to Highwood. Partners and staff are committed to having a positive impact on the communities in which they live and work by supporting local initiatives and charities. This includes youth projects as it is recognised that investment in the youth of today will mean a brighter future tomorrow.
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.
My experience of Highwood is that they are run by people who put the interests of their clients first and are prepared to invest their own money into the same schemes that they are recommending to their clients. Honesty and integrity is the foremost asset that any financial advisor should have and Highwood are willing to dissuade a client from an investment if it is not in the clients best interests. If you want a personalised service, second to none, look no further than Highwood Financial Services.
I called in yesterday to talk through by pension investment with Paul, he was as always thoroughly professional and I just wanted to acknowledge this. We do not often meet up so for that reason it is a comfort to know Paul is around to look after things.
