    What you can expect




    The Advice cycle:


    I will spend time understanding your personal circumstances and future financial objectives. We all prefer to do business with someone we both like and trust, so it may take several conversations before you know enough about me to want to become a client. My comprehensive advice service includes:


  • Initial meetings are provided without obligation.


  • Expert evaluation and analysis in given to identify areas where I can assist you in achieving your goals or where I believe I can add value to your existing arrangements.


  • During planning meetings, I consider options together and agree a strategy suited to your risk profile and objectives.


  • Recommendations are always confirmed in writing and supported by personalised illustrations and appropriate disclosure documents.


  • Regular reviews ensure that my recommendations and advice remain appropriate, reflecting your changing needs and objectives over time.


  • As further needs and objectives change over time, I believe that a fundamental part of the effective wealth management is regular face-to-face reviews of your arrangements. Only in this way can I ensure that my recommendations and advice remain ‘fit for purpose’.



    Ongoing Advice Charge


    We will discuss with you the ongoing advice charges for our services. Our advice is not free. Details of the charges we make for our advice, and how it is paid for, are set out in the “Key facts about our costs and services” document you will receive. The cost for our advice is paid for and facilitated, out of the overall charges levied on your investment. The advice charges will also be discussed with you, and the specific amount charged will be provided on your personalised illustration. If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact us.


    The value of an investment with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the value invested.
