Cath Ball, Dip PFS

Financial Adviser

Vice President of the Nottingham Insurance Institute

Vice Chair of the Personal Finance Society

2015 was my 20th year in Financial Advice – but no two days are the same so it remains fresh and interesting.  I believe financial advice is an important relationship between client and adviser and I gain satisfaction from working closely with clients, helping them achieve their goals both in the short term and throughout their lives and that of their families.

When advising my clients I work to the ethos that I wouldn’t do anything for that client, which I would not do for my Mother in the same situation.

On a relaxing note, when not working, I enjoy my holidays and I am trying to see as much of the world as possible. I’m not doing too badly, but there is still a lot to be explored!

I entered into financial services on Black Monday - 26th October 1987 and although it was not down to me the financial world has been extremely challenging ever since !

I worked for 14 years with the Prudential as an Adviser before becoming an IFA in 2001 and then joining Red in May 2012.

I am qualified to give advice and recommendations on Pensions and Annuities, Investments, Savings, Mortgages and protection solutions including life and critical illness cover plus Inheritance Tax planning.

With having 3 adult children I know the challenges faced by a growing family so feel I am well placed to offer financial solutions to individuals as well as companies.
