We believe we are uniquely positioned in the Wealth Management market because of the strength, depth and experience of our Advisers – the St. James’s Place Partnership – and our distinctive approach to investment management. As well as the above, we are a Company who believes in ‘giving something back’ and to this end the St. James’s Place Foundation (our registered charity) was set up in 1992 and has raised over £37 million to date, which has been distributed to hundreds of charities each year, with grants ranging from a few thousand pounds to more than £1 million.

For successful business owners, this is an excellent way to give back to the community. This month Bernie will launch his latest book “Stop Selling and Get Clients”, which is helping businesses and individuals get more clients without even selling. As a business coach, I know the challenges people have, and the challenges we all face to have courage. Every day I work with sales people and employees to be more productive and to change their lives. I have received many awards in my business coaching and training career so I understand and appreciate the motivation and the effectiveness of awards. That is why I am a supporter of this wonderful initiative from the St. James’s Place Foundation.
