St James's Place Investment Portfolios

Topic: St James’s Place 23 March 2018

SJP Model portfolios reviewed

As a restricted advice firm, St James’s Place and their partner advisers can only provide their customers with access to SJP branded funds, and from this selection, their Investment Committee has put together a range of model portfolios to cater to different types of investors

Each of these portfolios contains a spread of funds that cover a wide range of asset types and countries. They have been created to offer a ready-made investment solution that caters to the differing needs of investor’s.

The ‘Investment Committee’ state the objective for their portfolios is to “generate superior investment results for our clients”. But with a significant proportion of their funds underperforming, how well have their portfolios performed?

This report details the 1, 3 & 5-year growth for all 9 SJP model unit trust portfolios. This includes the performance, sector rank and overall quality rating for each portfolio’s underlying funds.

How do their portfolios compare?

Each SJP portfolio has been created to suit different investor profiles assuming varying levels of risk and growth opportunities.

Below we identify the recent 1, 3 & 5 year growth for each of the 9 SJP unit trust/ISA portfolios that are currently available as well as the individual performance, sector ranking and rating for each of the underlying funds that make up their portfolios.

Record growth for SJP but not for their customers

St James's Place Performance for their investors as seen in our recent St James Place 2018 fund review (see related articles below) was not positive, but as a company they have been hugely profitable, and their continued acquisition of local and regional advisory practices has helped them build a substantial customer base - with total funds under management exceeding £90 billion. But with high charges and comparatively poor fund performance are their customers getting a good deal?

SJP remain confident in the strength of their client proposition and recently stated that in 2017 they retained 96% of customer funds and that more than 80% of their clients had described their service as “good” or “excellent”.

However, the fact remains that their funds have persistently underperformed, their portfolios have been uncompetitive, and as detailed in our previous report, their charges are among the highest on the market.
