“Jonathan spent time getting to know us first. As a result, we have not only received excellent financial advice, but it is perfectly tailored to our lifestyle and circumstances.
We would confidently recommend his services.”


Mr Jeremy Cross – Company Chairman, Kirkby Overblow


“When I was looking for sound financial advice to support me through my retirement after bad investments with another Financial Adviser, Jonathan really listened to what I wanted from my investments instead of making assumptions.
Since then, he has always given me reassuring advice and technical information, in terms I understood. With his professional understanding of the products, he produced a portfolio specifically with my best interests being foremost.
With his expert knowledge and understanding of my financial requirements, he has continued to give trustworthy advice to keep pace with the changing financial market. He has been a real asset.”

“Robert is the consummate professional. His advice is always balanced, sound and generates trust. His manner is always friendly and his level of service and support second to none.
He works hard to promote the best interests of the client, but always takes time to explain his advice and any available options.
He is an exceptional adviser and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.”


Mr John Sherwood – Commercial Director, Leeds

His advice has always resulted in very good results since he regularly monitors his clients portfolio and advises of periodic fine tuning.
They say ‘you get what you pay for’, this is certainly true of Jonathan & St. James’s Place. In my opinion they are ‘simply the best’ !!”

We could not be more satisfied, I recommend him unreservedly.”
