Getting to know Catherine Bockett

Catherine Bockett joined the 2mtrust team in 2022 and is a licensed Financial Adviser. With a passion to be approachable and give easy-to-understand advice, Catherine quickly picked up the heart of 2mtrust and is keen to educate and advise generations of families with their financial planning.

However, there’s much more to Catherine than mortgage rates and protection policies! With a grown family of her own, years of travelling experiences and many adventure stories to tell, we asked her a few questions so you can get to know her a little better.

Here’s what Catherine had to say -

1. What did you do for a job before coming to work with 2mtrust?

I have been self-employed for 20 years, working from home as a proof reader, transcriber and administrator. So at 2mtrust I am comfortable working by video calls – but love to also meet up with clients face to face

2. What do you like to do outside of work?

I row on the River Tyne; I like the cinema and theatre; I spend time with my family, enjoying meals or out walking

3. What has been your favourite holiday so far?

I love family holidays of any variety, home or abroad, but I also had a memorable holiday 30 years ago when I returned as an adult to my childhood home in Uganda, and had the chance to relive memories.

4. Do you speak any other languages?

I studied French and Spanish at university, so can just about get by with those!

I love languages, so when working abroad in the past I have taken time to learn local languages including Nepali, Sinhala and Pidgin English.

5. What is your favourite film, tv show or book and why?

I love the book ‘Flowers for Mrs Harris’ by Paul Gallico, which came out as a film last year – Mrs Harris goes to Paris. It’s a gentle story set in London and Paris post-WW2, which restores your faith in human nature.

6. What is your favourite meal of the day?

It would have to be our evening meal. It’s the only one where everyone gets together round the table.

7. Do you have any pets?

We have a miniature Schnauzer called Griffin, who is much loved by the whole family. I’m the dog walker five days out of seven!

8. Do you have a life/family motto?

‘Don’t take any wooden nickels’ - quite appropriate for someone giving financial advice!

9. What advice would you give your teenage self?

Always be curious – there is so much to learn beyond what is immediately around us.

10. What is (or what would be) your karaoke song?

I’ve never participated in Karaoke, but I think it would have to be an Abba song, maybe ‘Waterloo’.

So, did you learn something new about Catherine Bockett?

We think Catherine has fit right in at 2mtrust and we look forward to seeing her grow even more as she continues to care for her clients.

“Catherine brings a wealth of experience to her role and she is committed to helping others and finding the very best solutions for people's financial needs” – Mark Townson, Practice Principal
