Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management

Greg Ryan, Senior Financial Adviser

Based in Norfolk, I provide financial advice to clients across East Anglia, London and the Home Counties.

With over 30 years experience in financial services, my great pleasure has been to build long term relationships based on trust. Indeed, I am now advising many grandchildren and in some cases great grandchildren of my original clients and this gives me an immense amount of pride.

These relationships have developed based on an understanding that every client is an individual with their own personal objectives, and this is what I focus on; the best possible financial outcomes for my clients, their businesses and their families.

My initial meetings with clients are often arranged as a result of a life event; examples may include, marriage, birth of a child, redundancy, job move or career change, retirement or inheritance.

The solutions provided will be varied and tailored to individual circumstances but will often include planning for retirement and the tax efficient exit from business as well as personal savings and investment strategies to support a comfortable life after work.

Married with four children, now young adults, Amanda and I enjoy supporting their various creative activities including dancing, acting and stand up comedy. Travelling and exploring new parts of the UK as well as lands further afield has always brought us huge pleasure and we are constantly planning our next adventure.

Exit strategies may include the referral to a service that is separate and distinct to those offered by St. James's Place.
