Our Clients

We only work with clients where we can add value.

For this reason we only work with clients who have liquid assets (cash, pensions, ISA & investments) of £250,000 and above.

This is likely to be people who have more complex situations:

  • Business owners or professionals
  • Pre or retirement planning
  • Inheritance or sale of business

In addition our preferred clients are:

  • People who want to work with us
  • People who follow our philosophy and share our vision
  • Clients who value a relationship with their adviser that engages, educates and mentors.

As part of our holistic approach, we may make introductions to the services of other professionals who share our values.

Testimonials

My accountant recommended that I should take advice from a different independent financial advisor four years ago, as my investments were scattered and not especially tax efficient.  They recommended I meet Highwood.

I met Michael Gould of Highwood at my accountants office in 2013 and quickly realised that I should appoint them.  I gave them details of all my assets and they took approximately a month to prepare a thorough written investment report which we followed up with a further meeting. On their advice I gradually changed various holdings including organising my SIPP and setting up Educational trusts for my grandchildren etc.

I have been very impressed after three years with the performance of my portfolio and especially the efficient quiet way that they have responded to my requests. I now have an annual meeting with Highwood to receive a written report and in the Interim they deal with my requests quickly and efficiently in correspondence and by phone. All the team at Highwood appear to be very professional and I have no hesitation in recommending them

Like many people I have used a number of financial advisers. The service at Highwood is the best. Their advice is tailored to my needs, they are always available and it’s delivered in a professional and balanced manner.
