Susan Hill, one of the Personal Finance Society chartered champions for London, has set up an IFA firm after leaving St James’s Place (SJP).
Hill (pictured) has launched Susan Hill Financial Planning, which is an appointed representative of the Sense network. She said that due to the terms of her contract with SJP, she was starting her new business with no clients, but that this had its benefits.
‘I have a rather long restrictive covenant from SJP, so I am starting my new business with no clients. But in a way this has its benefits because I don’t have to deal with legacy issues,’ she said.
She added she would continue to have a focus on advising female clients. ‘It’s hugely satisfying to empower women to manage their own money and to see them flourish, for many after a life-changing and traumatic event,’ she said.
