A Brief Summary

We provide trusted and suitable advice for any financial arrangement.

What We Do

There are a few distinct reasons why clients decide to work with me, which are.

*Professional expertise & guaranteed advice* *

As a member of the St. James’s Place Partnership the advice I provide to my clients is guaranteed by the company, providing considerable reassurance to existing and new clients that they will be receiving trusted and suitable advice. There is a stringent approval process where my recommendations are independently reviewed for suitability, which includes assessing the costs, charges, potential tax and penalties.

*No obligation meetings*

Unlike many advisers or other professionals, I am happy to provide new clients with two to three initial meetings at their home or business premises without obligation. I believe this process should be conducted slowly so that prospective clients can feel entirely comfortable with the advice I can provide and how it will benefit them. I typically follow a five stage process with the first three meetings at no obligation.

i. Initial Meeting

ii. Fact Finding Meeting

iii. Presentation Meeting

iv. Implementation Meeting

v. Service and Ongoing Communication Meeting

*Removing the confusion, pressure & jargon*

One of the biggest barriers to prospective clients taking action with their finances is the expectation they will be overwhelmed by jargon, unrealistic recommendations and high costs. The purpose of my five stage process is to take the time to help clients understand their current situation and future goals so that the benefit of any recommendations is clearly understood before any decision is made or costs incurred.

*Distinctive investment approach that other advisers are not able to provide*

If you have another adviser, can they assure you that your funds are regularly monitored and pro-actively managed? St. James’s Place approach to investment management does this very effectively and we believe this means there is a greater propensity to achieve superior returns over the medium to long term than other investment providers.


Being a younger adviser (35) I am in a fortunate position to be able to talk to clients about their long term planning with the expectation I will be able to provide the advice and service throughout their plan. Working with my father we run our own business choosing to recommend and advise on the products and services of St. James’s Place Wealth Management. This structure should provide clients with confidence that they will have access to some of the best financial solutions from an award winning and trusted provider and the continuity of advice and service from my father and I with a combined 44 years’ experience.

*Commitment to the highest service standards*

Having worked for one of the Top five UK Banks, I understand the frustrations clients experience when dealing with large organisations. My commitment to all clients is to provide a very personalised, responsive and proactive service. I am happy to be contacted at any time via mobile or email. I also provide all clients with a service charter to set out the ongoing service and communications options available. Since joining St. James’s Place all of my new clients have been from introductions from existing, satisfied, clients.

*Areas of advice*

From arranging ISA Investments, retirement planning, estate planning to financial protection. Between my father and I we are able to provide advice on the majority of personal and corporate financial planning needs. We also have a mortgage broker in our office.

If you would like to arrange a no obligation meeting to discuss your financial planning please call or email on the contact information above.
