Gary Shields Wealth Management LLP

Senior Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management


Gary Shields, Principal

I have worked within the Financial Services Industry since 1980, during which time I have provided banking, mortgage and general financial advice to a variety of clients with different aspirations and financial objectives.

My aim is to provide a personal face to face service, providing advice which takes full account of my clients' particular circumstances. I would expect to meet clients on a very regular basis to both review the arrangements already made on their behalf and to consider any new requirements which they may have.

I am able to provide professional advice on

We have two highly experienced mortgage advisers working in our Practice who are able to provide advice in the mortgage market whether that be to clients seeking to buy a new home, acquire an investment property or merely seeking a remortgage arrangement. We are able to offer a comprehensive range of mortgages from across the market, which lenders make available to mortgage intermediaries.

Whether your need is straight forward or complex I can provide personal, professional advice to suit your individual requirements.

My aim is to keep my clients aware of the most up-to-date information and opinions. I maintain long-term, trusted relationships with clients, showing quality, integrity and excellence which in turn gives financial peace of mind.

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.
