Founding Director and Board Member
- 0191 500 6930
Kevin worked in the financial management industry for over 30 years with extensive wealth management experience alongside exceptional knowledge and understanding of NHS pension policy and final salary pension schemes.
The quality of advice available nationally regarding the NHS Pensions is highly questionable. Kevin has supported a cohort of regulated advisers to ensure they understand the complexities of the NHS Pension Scheme.
Make sure you do your homework and ensure your adviser fully understands the NHS Pension scheme.
Kevin founded RMT Financial Management Ltd in 1994 and was quickly joined by fellow Director Richard Blackett, after working as a consultant for Standard Life and then setting up a financial services division for RMT Accountants. For two decades Kevin and Richard were the driving force behind the growth of RMT Financial Management Ltd. They completed a management buy-out in 2012 and cut all ties with RMT in order to launch a new brand for their financial management business Blackett Walker. Blackett Walker became a leading independent financial adviser and wealth management consultancy with >£220 million pounds under management. After 25 years, Blackett Walker was acquired by Sanlam in March 2019. As part of the acquisition, Kevin worked as a Financial Adviser with Sanlam before stepping down from a client advisory role in 2019. Kevin remains a Director of BW Medical Accountants.
In July 2013 Kevin and members of the senior management team set up BW Medical Accountants, of which he is now a Director.
Throughout his 30+ year career, Kevin built up specialist knowledge in all aspects of wealth management. With a specialism in NHS pension policy, Kevin's expertise spanned financial planning advice for medical professionals and complex final salary pension schemes, which was arguably unrivalled nationally.
Kevin delivered pension consultancy services to Hospital Trusts, CCG's and lectured nationally to GPs, Practice Managers and Consultants. He was also a guest speaker for national medical conferences such as Pulse Live, providing specialist support and guidance on complex NHS pension changes.
Kevin worked alongside BW Medical's NHS Pension Team to develop our NHS Pension Management Service, led by Medical Accountant and mathematician Tina Milligan. It was Tina and her team who highlighted the catalogue of errors being made by the NHS Pensions Authority when issuing statements and to ensure we don't rely on their information our experts have created a forecasting tool to enable us to provide proactive advice for our clients, enabling BW Medical Clients to make informed financial decisions regarding their personal finances and gain clarity of their Annual Allowance tax position.
