Partner Practice of
St. James's Place Wealth Management


Iain Tibbitt DipFA,
Financial Consultant

I have been in financial services since I joined Norwich Union in 1994. I joined Tailored Solutions in 2004 as a Mortgage Adviser.

In early 2012, I began advising on all aspects of financial planning including protection, retirement and investment planning.

I am very pleased to be a part of St. James’s Place Wealth Management. I believe the investment proposition we offer is excellent. I enjoy helping people to achieve their financial goals.

Like Stuart, I am also a keen musician and play the saxophone in a band.

Nic Bennett DipFA,
Financial Consultant

I have been working in the financial services industry for over 16 years, dealing with pensions, investment planning and protection. I have built up expert knowledge and experience that will enable me to assist you with all your financial planning needs.

My expertise covers multiple areas of financial planning and will help you and your business to:

  • Increase and grow your wealth, specifically through the St. James's Place distinctive approach to investment management;
  • Preserve assets for long-term financial security;
  • Protect yourself and your loved ones from unforeseen events;
  • Effectively manage capital and borrowings.

In addition to my experience, I also believe that quality service and trust builds a long term working relationship. I am committed to building a sustainable service agreement with every client, through regular contact and open lines of communication.

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.
