St James Place Review

Name: St James's Place

Description: St. James's Place is one of the largest LSE-listed wealth managers with over £150bn in client funds. SJP offer wealth management for high-net-worth individuals with a minimum of £250,000 to invest (or £50k for savings deposits).

Is St James's Place a good wealth manager?

SJP is getting better as they move away from locking clients in with high exit charges, but they still only offer a selection of restricted funds. Plus they charge a whopping 4.5% of your initial investment, plus an annual charge of 0.5%, then an additional charge of 1.5% which does reduce to 0.85% after 10 years.

Being charged, 0.5% a year is actually relatively competitive (Wealthify for example charges 0.6%), but in my view, the 4.5% initial fee makes St James’s Place uninvestable.
