Police Clubs Financial

Bespoke mortgage services
Police Clubs Financial has introduced a bespoke proposition for members of the Police Superintendents’ Association looking to review their mortgage and protection arrangements.

The service provides independent advice for members who have particular requirements for mortgages, allowing them to mix and match key product elements such as the term, fee and product incentive, to create a solution personal to them and their circumstances.

Police Clubs Financial Director Adam Reading says: “Many clients firstly told us that they did not know we even offered advice on mortgages and protection. There is so much focus on the complex pension changes that have taken place that often basic financial issues and general planning is overlooked. We are combining our retirement planning expertise to help meet the needs of members by developing this highly regarded proposition so that immediate financial needs are kept in line with an individual’s longer term plans. Some clients often need to review their mortgage arrangements because of the impact of the pension changes or their career aspirations which often doesn’t meet with standard mortgage underwriting.  As part of this bespoke service, members will get a premium level of support with direct access to our dedicated team of advisers and support staff”.

Here’s how a client has described the service:

“I was so impressed with the service from start to end and it saved so much of our time. From one phone call a product was found that suited our needs perfectly and one which I wouldn’t have found. Claire Martin the adviser did absolutely everything and made this remortgage the easiest and best I have done. A great service from a caring professional.”

Ch Supt, A&S

Reflect Financial PFM

Financial management
Bespoke Financial Advice for Senior Police Officers

Philip Pearson provides financial advice to clients and operates on a nationwide base.  With over thirty years of experience within the financial services profession, fifteen of which were as Principal of Pearson Financial Management (PFM), Philip has been providing bespoke financial advice to senior police officers for over twenty years.  During this time, he has developed a strong reputation within the Police Superintendents’ Association (PSA) for providing the highest quality financial advice and for helping members make provision for their ongoing financial security.  

Philip also supports senior police officers through the provision of pre-retirement seminars.  These events are extremely popular and have proved to be an invaluable source of advice and guidance to members as they consider a life beyond policing.  The seminars, which are free of charge and to which spouses/partners are also welcome to attend, include essential topics such as:

·       Money Management
·       Investment Strategy and Risk
·       Wills/Estate planning
·       Preparing for retirement
·       Police pensions and taxation

The value of an investment with St. James’s Place is directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the amount invested.

The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time and are dependent on individual circumstances.

Advice relating to a Will necessitates the referral to a service that is separate and distinct to those offered by St. James’s Place. Wills are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

St. James’s Place

Philip is a Senior Financial Planning Consultant within Reflect Financial Limited, a Partner Practice of St. James’s Place Wealth Management (St. James’s Place).  St. James’s Place Wealth Management is a multi-award-winning FTSE 100 company with £129.34 bn of funds under management (as of 28th January 2021).  Philip is fully qualified as financial adviser with the Chartered Insurance Institute and through St. James’s Place’s own accreditation processes.

St. James’s Place operates a distinctive Investment Management Approach.  It retains control of its own funds and then sub-contracts their management to leading fund managers from across the globe, all of whom have been selected by the St. James’s Place Investment Committee with the help of independent consultants. Once selected and appointed, the performance of the fund managers is closely and continuously monitored.  The global reach of St. James’s Place’s selection process means that it is not restricted to recommending UK registered funds only.  St. James’s Place is committed to an ethical and responsible investing policy and has an in-house Responsible Investment Committee. 

Reflect Financial Limited

Backed up by the technical and client services team at Reflect Financial Ltd and St. James’s Place, the strength of Philip’s advice is rooted in his experience of working with police officers over many years, together with his knowledge and understanding of the police pension schemes and the taxation regimes that impact upon them.  As a valued client, your key relationship would always be with Philip, but it is important to highlight that, below the surface, you would also have exclusive access to highly qualified and experienced specialist advice teams bringing together investment and pension specialists, banking advisers, and experts in taxation and legal matters. 

Working alongside Philip is former Chief Superintendent and National Secretary of the PSA, Tim Jackson QPM.  Having led for the Association on the reform of police pensions, and worked closely with other staff associations in relation to this, Tim has a detailed knowledge of the various police pension schemes and related taxation matters.

Wilson Grange Mortgages

Bespoke Independent Mortgage and Protection Advice for Senior Officers
Willson Grange Mortgages is proud to be working with the Police Superintendents’ Association again this year.
 
Based on mainland UK, with a head office in the North West of England, we are a team of highly qualified and experienced mortgage and protection advisers offering impartial independent advice to senior members of the Police force.  
 
Willson Grange Mortgages is also an accredited provider to currently Cheshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester Police Federations.
 
Director Ian Ward and his team have developed a strong reputation and a long-standing and trusted professional relationship with the Police Superintendents’ Association (PSA).  They are noted for providing exceptional service, together with a completely confidential, flexible, tailored advice provision to meet senior police officers’ often complex needs.    
 
Ian has over 35-years experience in financial services, is a former Flight Lieutenant in the RAF Reserve and a qualified gliding instructor, and he was also a Special Constable with Merseyside Police.  Due to his professional and life experiences, he has an acute appreciation and recognition for all police officers, support staff and their families key financial needs. Ian understands the risks and pressures affecting officers day to day, as well as their longer-term needs and plans when retirement looms.

“Everyone has different circumstances, ambitions and areas of concern, so it’s important that we take time to understand each officer’s needs from an individual perspective,” says Ian. 


“Being independent, we’re able to research across the whole of market and come up with a range of suitable options, often with products not available on the high street”.   

“We operate on a national basis, and many senior-ranked officers have found our first-class professional service invaluable, particularly during the current volatile economic climate”
Ian Ward CeMAP CeRER, Director of Willson Grange Mortgages

 WHAT SENIOR POLICE OFFICERS SAY ABOUT WILLSON GRANGE MORTGAGES… 
… “Very impressed with the service from Ian and the team at Willson Grange Mortgages. Everything completed ‘virtually’ and in a timely way. Thank you.” - Supt. JMH – Sussex Constabulary 

… “Exceptional friendly level of service – highly recommended.” - Supt. DJC – Lincolnshire Constabulary 

… “Excellent, and very quick professional service.” - Supt. RDC – West Yorkshire Constabulary 

… “I’ve already recommended Becky [one of the Willson Grange Mortgages team members] to a number of people. Becky went ‘above and beyond’ in her role and was there for me when there were some difficult legal questions from the solicitor’s. Her patience was second to none, particularly when I had two house sales fall through and we had to start the process all over again. Becky’s easy going and friendly nature made a stressful situation very easy. She is a credit to the team and the company.” - Supt. SJS – Lancashire Constabulary 

IT STARTS WITH A CONVERSATION…
We know from experience that what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another. Simply by talking to you to find out what your current position is, and where you would like it to be, our advisers can help you to build and plan for a more secure future. Did you know, for example, that buying a new home is not the only time you could benefit from mortgage advice? We can advise on whether you might be paying too much for your current mortgage and help you switch even if you are tied in to your existing deal*. Likewise, we can also help find the most competitive offer on a remortgage if your current deal has come to an end. Debt consolidation is also an area where we can offer specialist advice.

* If you feel as though you are ‘locked-in’ to your current mortgage with a penalty payable, we are able to assess whether there’s a cost saving to be made by paying the penalty and by switching your mortgage to an even better deal. 

We’re delighted to offer senior police officers the following benefits: 

IMPARTIAL independent mortgage and protection advice

PERSONAL service from highly qualified and experienced professionals

ACCESS
to the Whole Market together with mortgage providers not available on the high street
