Working with Retiring Officers

Sarah Siddons Financial Planning, Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management, is proud to offer a bespoke financial advice service to retiring police officers. Sarah is experienced at working with retiring officers predominantly within West Yorkshire Police, advising them generally about how to restructure their financial situation and providing important peace of mind to help them maximise income in retirement.

Retirement presents a major crossroads in life, with important decisions to be made affecting families and long term finances. This is particularly important for officers who don’t intend to work again.

For those leaving the Police Service it is inevitably a time of great change and each retiring police officer’s situation is unique. Sarah therefore takes time to get to know each officer & their family before she puts forward any recommendations. Meetings are without obligation, informal & are usually conducted in the familiar surroundings of people’s own homes.

Having a conversation to establish whether or not I can help you costs nothing other than an hour of your time. Invariably I can help and can often make suggestions which may not have been thought of before. I can also provide a second opinion where advice has already been sought.

Before deciding to meet with Sarah why not read what some of her existing clients have said about working with her:

“Having attended the police resettlement course I realised that I needed financial advice regarding my pension. It was refreshing to deal with Sarah who understands the needs of retiring police officers, explains things in simple terms, outlining levels of the risk & available investment plans with a well-regarded financial institution. I can confidently recommend Sarah to any officer in need of investment wisdom.”

Nick Godber, Retired Police Officer, Ilkley


“Sarah has advised us on our personal finances and duly advised us on a wide range of financial planning areas. Sarah’s advice is relevant, thorough and constructive. She keeps in touch on a regular basis which subsequently prompts us to keep our finances under review. Sarah has a very good understanding of our investment objectives and there is no “hard sell”. I have been advised by many IFA’s and Sarah has been the best to date.”

Kenny Tennant, Retired Christmas 2010


“I met with Sarah just before I was due to retire and she helped me to review all of my existing investments as well as giving me advice on how best to structure my finances once I retired from West Yorkshire Police. I’ve enjoyed our meetings and like the way Sarah explains her recommendations in plain English. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, and already have several times.”

Diane Watts, Retired Detective Constable, Oxenhope


“Having been recommended to me by another retiree, and after doing my own research, I found Sarah to be trustworthy and very focused on doing the best for me in terms of her recommendations. I also like the fact that she is local to me and will be there to advise myself and my family for the foreseeable future.”
