Understanding the military

David spent 4 years as an officer in the Education and Training Services and 4 years with the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment prior to his military retirement and subsequent retraining as a Financial Adviser with St. James’s Place Wealth Management.

A life in the military requires dedication of the highest order, the commitment required can mean all of your energy is focussed on the next task being asked of you and not on your personal needs and goals.

It is common to find that individuals (regardless of rank) reach their retirement/discharge date having made no financial plans or gains – this is often down to a number of factors:


  • Time, it’s in short supply, and there are more important short-term work goals to achieve
  • Consistent and understandable good advice is hard to access, made more difficult if you are posted regularly or frequently on exercise.
  • Global mobility, how can you be sure of your rights and financial opportunities when located in different countries.
  • Financial jargon, just like the military have their own “jargon and TLAs” so do financial specialists, understanding the advice is the key to your confidence when looking for help.

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