Robert Walsh


My career in Financial Services began in Mortgages and Pure Protection. I am now fully focused on the Equity Release and Later Life sector, providing advice on Lifetime Mortgages as well as other areas that tend to become more important to clients over time such as estate planning, wills and trusts.

Product creation, competitive rates and important protections for clients mean the time has now come for Lifetime Mortgages to be regarded as a safe and important consideration in later life financial planning. Viva Retirement Solutions is a firm with a great client-centred ethos and an enviable reputation in the industry. I am delighted to represent it.

I am based in Manchester, covering the North West. I live with my partner who I met on a charity walk on a long wall in China ten years ago. We still do a lot of walking at weekends, but mostly closer to home either in the countryside or in the many National Trust parks and gardens hereabouts. Most of my other interests can be achieved sitting down; I am a movie buff, a keen reader of many subjects, I dabble in creative-writing and am a long-time fan of Formula One



A lifetime mortgage is a long term commitment which could accumulate interest and is secured against your home.   

Equity release is not right for everyone and may reduce the value of your estate
