The Founder of this high level investment and financial planning consultancy, has been awarded the Top Practice Award in their category by a FTSE 100 wealth management company.
This family owned and operated wealth management practice was founded by Darron Childs 15 years ago. Darron and business partner, Michael Jones, who joined the Practice in 2015, have over 55 years combined experience advising Individuals, Business Owners and Trustees, in often highly complex financial planning areas, such a Pension Drawdown, Investment Portfolio's and Trust Planning. Over the last few years the Practice has gently expanded, in the process, creating local jobs for local people. The business works exclusively with established clients, and introductions from existing clients, essentially managing investments and providing on-going financial planning advice. The Practice also works with a network of Solicitors and Accountants providing additional support for high level clients.
Darron & the Practice team are also great supporters of the local economy. Last year, Darron's work in the community was recognised at the 2016 West Lindsey's Community Awards with The Chairman's Civic Award presented to both Darron and Thelma Childs to recognise their work with The Delvers local history group over the years. 2017 will mark the 20th anniversary of The Delvers local history Blue Plaque Trail which celebrates this subject, and Darron will help launch a commemorative book to help promote the work of The Delvers.
Clients of the Practice benefit from an exclusive calendar of events, which are designed to entertain and educate. Events are held at a interesting venues including The Lindens, the former Dower House at Lea, which Darron helped save and restore with family member, Simon Beacock, winning an English Heritage, Angel Award in 2013.
Over the last few years The Darron Childs Practice & Friends have raised thousands of pounds for charitable causes, involving a diverse range of sponsored activities such as a Sky-dive, the Ten Tours challenge, and a Jurassic Coastline walk. Last year, Michael Jones successfully launched a Practice Golf day at Gainsborough's Thonock Golf Course, raising funds for Gainsborough Trinity FC and its charitable activities, in association with CPA Ethical Wealth. A similar 2017 event is already in the planning.
The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested.
