St. James's Place investment management approach

Plan, design, review

We believe that planning today will help you build a better future

In a world where we’re generally living longer, there has never been a more important time for you to plan for a future that is financially stable, not just for you but for your loved ones. Of course, no two futures are the same. Whether you are a parent wanting to save for your child’s education, or a grandparent choosing to take control of your finances today so you know your family will be financially secure tomorrow. That is why our bespoke approach to supporting your money management is shaped around you and your unique goals.

We recognise just how important it is for you to receive ongoing support from our team, which is why we promise to be by your side every step of the way. 

For us, communication is key. To help us better understand your financial goals, we work with you in three phases:


Creating a clear plan designed to help you achieve your long-term goals, for example, a comfortable retirement


Producing an investment portfolio that takes into account the forecast of your future, as well as your attitude to risk and your capacity for risk


Consistent support, helping you work towards reaching your goals through an evolving market and any changes in personal circumstances.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and may go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.
