Wealth Management & Financial Security

Wealth Management is about creating the right investment and planning strategy helping to secure your future financial well-being. That path needs to be tailored to you, at your stage of life, personal requirements and understanding your aims, family and finances. As a team of listeners, Stroud Wealth Management offer bespoke advice and support for each client backed by the reputation and investment expertise of St. James’s Place.

Wealth Management is an incredibly broad term, especially if you have previously considered income, investments and savings as separate entities.

Wealth management should provide a coordinated or holistic plan for all aspects of your affairs throughout your life. For a successful relationship, you have to trust your wealth manager implicitly and there has to be empathy with your aspirations. Only in this way can you create a successful strategy for your financial affairs.

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.

Since being introduced in 1999, ISAs have proved one of the most popular and tax-efficient ways to save and invest for the future. In his March 2014 Budget, the Chancellor sprung a welcome surprise when he announced sweeping changes to ISA regulations, designed to encourage people to save more by offering bigger tax breaks and greater flexibility.

The ISA allowance remained at £20,000 for the tax year 2024/25, and the changes from July 2014 now allow full flexibility in the use of cash and investments within the overall annual limit.

St. James's Place draw on the expertise of some of the world’s top investment professionals to manage our ISA funds, and match the risks you are prepared to take with a well-diversified and balanced portfolio to create an appropriate strategy to aim for income or capital growth. Through regular reviews we adjust the mix to reflect changing needs and markets.

Key Investor Information Documents

Before investing in a Unit Trust via an ISA, it is important that you read our Key Investor Information Documents and Supplementary Information Document.

An investment in a Stocks and Shares ISA will not provide the same security of capital associated with a cash ISA. The favourable tax treatment given to ISAs is subject to changes in legislation and may not be maintained in the future.

With low levels of interest being paid on bank and building society deposit accounts, many long term investors are looking for a better return on their investments. They are also concerned that the income they receive will fail to keep pace with inflation.

Investment Bonds are long-term investment products which allow investors to spread risk and allow easy switching between funds as their needs change over time.

The main benefits of the St. James's Place Investment Bond are:

  • Access to the SJP approach to investment management and a choice of fund management expertise that is distinctive in the UK
  • Opportunities for you to diversify your investment and spread your risk
  • You have a flexible range of options to take a regular, tax-efficient income

The younger generation are facing new and difficult financial challenges as they grow up in the modern world.  University tuition fees, the challenge of finding a deposit on a first house and, further ahead, the prospect of having to work longer and make provision for an income in retirement. In 2011 Junior ISAs replaced Child Trust Funds (CTF). For children born between 2002 and 2011, they would have had a CTF. These can be transferred into a Junior ISA.

The St. James's Place Junior ISA can help give youngsters a head start and an introduction to the importance of saving.  It provides a flexible and tax-efficient way to build a capital sum to help secure the financial future of your children.

It can help them access a good education, open up opportunities and help them get established when they grow up. Starting to save money now might be the difference between whether or not they can afford to do what they would like when the time comes.

Unit Trusts are a useful investment as they can accommodate the tax advantages extended by ISAs, providing the opportunity to benefit from a stock market investment without further liability to Income or Capital Gains Tax.

They are often seen as a crucial component of a stocks and shares ISA and offer a range of other benefits to investors.  Unit trusts can provide a range of solutions for medium to long term capital growth and income.

As part of a focused tax planning exercise, unit trusts can provide investors with the flexibility to use their annual Capital Gains Tax allowance. Furthermore, when used in conjunction with a Trust* they also offer an alternative solution for investments on behalf of children.
