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

Jonathan Smith Consulting Ltd

Jonathan Smith

Prior to joining the financial services industry, I graduated with an LLB in Scots Law from The University of Glasgow and then worked as a police officer with Central Scotland Police. After deciding on a career change I spent the next four years working with banks whilst completing various qualifications in financial services (CeFA, CeMAP and DipFA) during my spare time.

In 2013 and 2015 at the Money Management Financial Planner Awards I finished as Runner up in the category of Protection Planner of the Year across the UK.


Jonathan Smith Consulting was established in 2014, when I accepted an invitation to join St. James's Place Wealth Management. Prior to this, I was operating as an Independent Financial Adviser for 4 years.

Based in Based in Menstrie, I am conveniently located for meeting with clients across Scotland.
