Glenrose supports Rolls-Royce workers with complimentary financial advice

As a proud Derby company, we’ve always believed in investing in, and giving something back to, the communities we serve.
The ongoing coronavirus crisis has had a big impact on many businesses across the city and beyond, and this is something that has not only affected business owners but has also impacted the lives of thousands of employees and their families, who face an uncertain future.
We were shocked by the news a few weeks ago that Rolls-Royce, the city’s most iconic employer, had to take the difficult decision to cut around 1,500 roles from its Civil Aerospace division in Derby, in response to the anticipated effects the Covid-19 pandemic will have on the aviation industry over the next few years.
It has left many local workers who could be affected by this decision facing worries about what the future might hold.
We already work with many clients employed by Rolls-Royce and have noticed an increase in enquiries on the back of the announcement it made recently.
In response, we have decided to offer any Rolls-Royce employees who may be affected by redundancy a complimentary initial financial planning consultation to discuss their situation and come up with a plan based on their individual requirements.
We provide families and individuals with a wide range of insurance and investment advice, as well helping with retirement planning and mortgages and hope that these sessions will help to provide peace of mind and a bit of financial security to anyone who might be affected.
Chris Leafe, our Director, said:
Rolls-Royce is a key part of the business landscape here in Derby, providing employment opportunities to generations of local families and driving the region’s economy.
We’ve worked with many current and former Rolls-Royce employees over the years and wanted to do something to help support its workers during this challenging time.
Many local people will be facing an uncertain future due to the changes being made, so we are offering initial financial planning consultations to anyone affected, so we can discuss their current financial situation and come up with a personalised plan which meets their retirement, mortgage, investment, and protection needs.
It’s important at times like this that the city pulls together. This is our way of supporting anyone who’s affected, and their families, to ensure that whatever happens, their finances are being taken care of in the best way possible.
