We look forward to welcoming you at Victoria House, a landmark building in the centre of Watford.

Victoria House started life as the Watford District Cottage Hospital in 1885, however by the end of the First World War, the idea of replacing the cottage hospital with a more modern hospital – as a memorial to those who had died in the war and as a permanent memorial to peace – was discussed. The Watford Board of Guardians bought the old cottage hospital building and it was transformed into a school that survived until October 2007. At which point it was bought by Highwood and sensitively refurbished into the building you see today, remaining true to its history and traditions.

Testimonials

After I sold my business I decided to take a serious look at my Pension Fund that I’d built up over many years and to appoint new financial advisors. Upon the recommendation of David Grunberg of Grunberg & Co, I approached Michael Gould and Highwood. It was important to me to be working with someone that I liked and felt I could get on well with, and Michael ticked those boxes. He appeared to be a man of honesty and integrity and he explained things in an easy to understand and relaxed fashion, and without any complicated technical financial jargon. He still does. I was looking for someone to take over my hard earned pension fund, look after it and invest it well, in order that it would in turn look after me going forward. I also wanted to sleep well at night, knowing it was in safe hands. So, 5 years on and I still sleep well at night, very well in fact. Michael and his team have looked after me extremely well, I’m now drawing down on my pension fund and am pleased to say that, even in this unsettled market, my fund is growing by at least, if not more than I’m taking out, and my capital is still intact.

Highwood Financial Services have been instrumental in helping us to get our financial house in order and giving us confidence in our plans for the future. We have a small business, and two young children, but we knew that we had gaps in our arrangements. Financial planning requires a high degree of trust, and we instantly had a rapport with Michael Gould that meant we had no hesitation talking with him about our journey so far and hopes for the future. In conjunction with a detailed assessment of our appetite for risk, he conducted a wide-ranging financial review of our existing insurance, historic pension and ongoing savings arrangements, and gave clearly reasoned advice on how to better structure them. We discussed his recommendations in great detail and followed all of his advice. With good life insurance and critical illness cover now in place, with new consolidated pension arrangements, we have confidence in the cover and plans that have put in place for ourselves and our family.
