An Associate Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management

David Rickards Financial Planning

David Rickards

I believe that smart investment is an important part of planning for a secure financial future; I also believe that finding ethical, sustainable and responsible businesses to invest in is good for the world and great for your wealth. I set up my business to help people who want to make a difference with their investments, and to have the highest quality financial advice they deserve.

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.


Prior to joining St. James's Place Academy, I enjoyed a successful 20 year career as a process improvement expert working with numerous high profile blue-chip companies. In my spare time I am a keen road cyclist and have completed Lands End to John O’Groats for charity. When not cycling, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters. David Rickards Financial Planning was developed out of a desire to provide long term quality financial advice to help our clients achieve a secure financial future for themselves and their families. Through face to face meetings and leveraging the “best of breed” products tailored by St. James\\\'s Place Wealth Management, we help our clients achieve their financial goals. With a base south of Nottingham, we are well placed to service clients across the Midlands.
