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.

Why We Are Different

  • Scientific and disciplined investment process
  • Cashflow planning is an integral part of our advice
  • We restrict the number of clients each manager has to ensure every client receives the service and attention they deserve
  • We provide solutions you understand
  • Our client base is built on client and professional recommendations
  • Co-invested with you: all our principals invest their own money alongside yours in the same way
  • No quibble fee guarantee; we will refund your advice fee if you are not happy with our recommendations
  • Regular monitoring and review through a formal Investment Committee

Testimonials

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.
