Erica Hay Wealth Management

Erica Hay

Every client is unique, not only in terms of their financial circumstances but in what they are looking to achieve. I build long lasting relationships with my clients to help them as they journey through an ever changing and uncertain world giving them the confidence to take control of their financial future.


Life has a habit of bringing the unexpected and often these events are life changing, perhaps in a good way, a lottery win or a welcome redundancy. Alternatively, it may be just the opposite following a bereavement, a divorce or a long term illness which prevents you from continuing to run your business. By working with you to understand your goals and values I am able to provide bespoke advice to give you financial peace of mind.

I have spent the last 30 years in Financial Services both as an IFA and within the Private Banking/Wealth Management arena. During that time, I have advised both personal and business clients providing advice on a wide range of areas including Protection, Retirement Planning, Investment Planning and Inheritance Tax Planning together with a range of Business Protection solutions.

The move to St. James's Place was a natural progression as, to me, the client should be at the heart of everything which is a view shared by St. James's Place. I am passionate about helping my clients plan the future they desire whilst protecting the wealth and lifestyle they have already created. The St. James's Place approach to Investment Management suits the type of client I tend to work with.

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.
