Frances Ford

Based in the Sherwood Forest area of Nottinghamshire, we provide bespoke financial planning advice to individuals and businesses in and around the Midlands. You as the client, your family and financial objectives are firmly at the heart of everything we do.


Major Oak Wealth Management was established in 2017 when I accepted an invitation to join St. James's Place Wealth Management as an Associate Partner Practice. Prior to this, I spent 6 years working in independent financial advice practices. Before joining the financial services industry, I studied Law with the Open University while I worked part time in a Financial Adviser’s Practice. Originally planning to be a Solicitor, but enjoying working in financial advice, I decided to change my path.

These include but are not limited to Lifetime cashflow planning – understanding how you might achieve your financial goals, Planning for retirement – are you saving enough, and are your pensions best placed?

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.
