I didn’t have an adviser looking after my financial planning and protections. Wherever there was a clear and obvious gap in my arrangements Catherine worked tirelessly to fill it. Wherever there was an unclear and less obvious gap in my arrangements Catherine made me aware of this and had various solutions to hand in order to rectify the situation.

I needed to consolidate pensions and look at my financial goals having moved out of formal employment to set up my own business. Catherine was brilliant – she really got underneath my whole financial situation and goals and we also brought my husband into the equation to get a full picture of what we wanted to achieve. We then pulled together all the information and Catherine gave me options and her opinion of the best way forward. Then she and the team got going on actioning everything which needed to be done. As my finances have evolved and changed with changes in life circumstances following bereavements and my business taking off she has always been there to make sure we still have the right things in place, and the right strategy to achieve my financial goals. I have worked in the finance industry for the all my working career and view myself as financially savvy – but Catherine has taken my own expertise to a new level and I love it that I feel secure in my finances and that she is always there when I need help.

So it was particular pleasure, when retaining Rockwood Financial Solutions to review my pension provisions, to discover that their passion and dedication to providing a similar level of service and dedication was equally outstanding.

The review and resolution of all issues in this matter were dealt with quickly and painlessly with a smooth efficient and totally professional manner. I will have no hesitation in recommending Rockwood Final Solutions to all my contacts, family and friends alike.

I often glaze over when it comes to issues of financial planning, but Catherine is different. She has an ability to bring the subject to life: with authority, common sense, drive, vision and a remarkably infectious energy

Mark Currie

It is so refreshing  to find such an approachable, straightforward ( just as you said) knowledgeable, and likeable person such as Catherine. Thank you.

Karen Malin

I wanted advise on my pension and the best way to manage a draw down income. Catherine was clear, concise and explained the options in a way that made complete sense. Would absolutely recommend and will use their services again.

Peter

We agreed a way forward and Catherine was super-efficient in getting the ball rolling. She explained everything clearly, pointing out things I had not been aware of. I am now happily retired and would certainly recommend Catherine Casey and her company Rockwood Financial Solutions to anyone looking for financial advice/planning. It was a pleasure doing business with her.

Helen Hamilton

We wanted to consolidate Pensions and Savings and to review we have sufficient for retirement plans. Catherine completed a review of our finances, assessed our attitudes to risks, lifestyle, expenses and potential for possible early retirement options. She advised about best options for investment plans and pensions and advice on retaining level of easy access cash for future needs and projects. She provided ongoing assistance with consolidating savings and pensions and converting into simplified wrapper financial products. She used simple language and clear illustrations to explain everything. We are happy with the simplification of our finances and are confident about retiring at a time suitable to us. We are very happy with the personal and professional service provided.

Anna Clare

We were planning the next stage of our lives post-retirement and wanted help managing our pensions. Catherine is fantastic: sensible, clever, calm, and very reassuring. We feel our money has been managed very well, and we are confident that Catherine is looking out for our best interests.

Linda Stevenson

We had a baby and I thought I better get life insurance and a private pension. Catherine sat down with me to work out what was best for me and my family. It was an excellent service and gave me piece of mind.

Paul Smith

I wanted advice on investing. Catherine gave me great recommendations and advice.

Sophia

Catherine carried out a full review, made appropriate recommendations and put the agreed actions into place. We continue to have regular planned discussions to ensure that our requirements continue to be met, which they are. The pension plan continues to perform very well and all other matters are highly satisfactory. Very happy with all aspects of the service.

Bernie Thornton

My partner and I approached Catherine for pensions advice a couple of years ago, and since then she has helped us to not only start our savings but use them to maximise the tax advantages they can provide. She set up our pensions quickly and efficiently and made it really easy for us to make both regular payments and lump sum deposits. She managed to track down old pensions, where others had failed and were able to consolidate these funds into the new accounts. Catherine gives clear and sound advice and is helping us to make use of the pension funds that we’ve been able to build up. I would recommend Catherine at every opportunity.

Andrew Firth

Catherine at Rockwood has been our Financial Advisors for about 5 years now and we cannot speak highly of her enough. There is no “selling” of products, it is Financial Planning advice. If you want to plan your financial future and protect yourself and your family should the unfortunate or worst happen, I would have no hesitation in recommending Catherine and her team.

Keeley Wallis

Catherine provided exactly the advice we needed and has put the correct policies in place which will ensure are families are protected and the added benefit that the polices are also tax efficient. Catherine’s technical knowledge is second to none and I can’t recommend her highly enough
