St. James’s Place Investment Management Approach

As we live longer, planning for 100-year lifetimes could become crucial in helping to secure financial wellbeing in a world worth living in.

We recognise that everyone’s financial journey is different, that is why our approach to financial and investment planning is based on individual goals.

To understand these goals and help provide peace of mind throughout your life we work with you in three phases:

PLAN: A clear plan is key in helping you meet your longer-term goals e.g. a comfortable retirement.

DESIGN: Designing an investment portfolio that considers your time horizon, your attitude to risk and your capacity for risk.

REVIEW: Helping you stay on track towards reaching your goals through changing market and personal conditions.


We Aim to Provide Superior Investment Results

SJP recognises that no single investment house has a monopoly on investment expertise, and SJP do not employ in-house investment managers. Instead they carefully select a number of external managers of outstanding ability to manage their range of funds.

This has a number of advantages:

  • It gives the freedom to select first-class managers from the global investment market to manage their funds on behalf of our clients
  • It enables them to change any of these managers at short notice if they have lost confidence in them, without any charges, or tax, or inconvenience to our clients
  • It offers our clients a real opportunity to diversify their investments by spreading their money across funds managed by different managers with different styles

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



A Global Approach to Selecting Fund Managers

Key to the distinctive SJP approach is the ability to identify and select fund managers from around the world. Contracting out the management of their funds gives them greater freedom and the flexibility to source investment expertise on a global scale, providing our clients with truly diversified portfolio solutions.
