GEM Wealth Management was established in 2018, when its Director Joe McAreavey accepted an invitation to join St. James's Place Wealth Management.

We live in a constantly evolving world, with significant changes having already occurred in financial services, legislation, and political environments. Add to this volatile investment markets, and it's easy to see why we believe building long term relationships, with regular face-to-face reviews, is essential to helping clients financial plans remain on track for their objectives.
Prestigious industry status recognises the value I place on my development and gives clients the confidence that they are supported by one of the UK’s leading wealth professionals.
