About Kate

Director & Owner

Prior to joining the financial services industry, Kate studied at Worcester University and graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Heath Sciences. In 2000 Kate joined her father in the family business and began furthering her career to qualify as an independent financial adviser.

Kate took over the business in 2011 upon her father’s retirement and has developed the business into new area’s and recruiting staff for the expanding teams within RPUK Ltd. RPUK continues to flourish and RPUK’s policy and ethos of being a family firm focused on client’s needs and interests is borne out of Kates mindset.  It is best illustrated by the strong relationship Kate has with her clients after 17 years of advising.

Kates breadth of knowledge and qualifications enable her to advise in the following areas:

  • Wealth Management
  • Investments
  • Pensions
  • Mortgages
  • Protection
  • Wills
  • Equity Release

An instinctive quality Kate has is the need to better herself, with a strong emphasis on her personal development. Kate is currently studying her final exams to become a Chartered Financial Planner.

Away from work Kate has two very active children keeping her busy. In her brief moments of respite Kate loves going to the gym, visiting the theatre and enjoying a gin or two with family and friends!!!
