St James’s Place
St James’s Place won’t fare too badly at all post RDR due to a number of factors, RBC predicts. SJP could potentially clean up while other, lesser prepared companies restrict their propositions or leave the market altogether.
Furthermore, as independence ceases to be a competitive advantage, advisers will move towards restricted advice. SJP’s own distribution network, the Partnership, will also provide much needed support, RBC said. All in all, the ensuing disruption in the marketplace should allow SJP to stand out.
