St James’s Place Wealth Management appoints new Head of Academy


St James’s Place, the wealth management group, has appointed Andy Payne as its Head of Academy, following an internal move from Head of Transition in the Business Establishment team.

Payne will be responsible for implementing the new and improved academy throughout 2021. Following an assessment of the training programme throughout 2020, it will now deliver enhanced training and development to a broader cross-section of the future financial advisers, unconstrained by geography or intake. The refreshed approach will look more towards supporting people at all stages of their career and training, whether that be right in the beginning of training, entering the business with full qualifications or joining us part way through.
Payne says: “I am delighted to have joined The Academy at such an exciting point of growth. The training programme, which is the largest in the UK, already has such a fantastic reputation and I look forward to growing this further with the team. The need for financial advice grows daily placing more and more emphasis on the need for high quality advisers and we hope to find these advisers and help them find success in line with their ambitions.”
Peter Edwards, Partnership Director at St James’s Place Wealth Management, says: “This is an exciting appointment for The Academy as we look forward to the changes it is set to roll out throughout this year. Andy brings excellent experience to the role from his background working in the Establishment team within the Partnership. I look forward to seeing how Andy shapes The Academy throughout the year and I wish him every success in his new role.”
