Oakway Connect

We give you confidence and clarity over your financial decisions

Before we get to know your money, we need to know you and what your relationship is with it. We guide you using goal-based financial planning, so that you have control and transparency when making your financial decisions. You’re invested in your success, and so are we.

First, we consider what is possible, then we support you in helping to achieve it.


How We Help

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.

You’ve worked hard to get where you are; We’ll work hard to get you where you want to be.

When we have conversations that burrow deep into what you really want in life, and you emotionally connect with that future, it allows us to focus our advice.

Most people do what makes sense to them. Furthermore, when you can clearly see that something will get you what you want, you tend to do it. We’ll help you clarify what’s possible and how to progress from goals to decisions, and then to action.

By helping you to commit to a vision that is integrated into a financial plan, we can put our insights into action, and you can spot opportunities – and act on them.
