Leon Alden
Financial Planner

Leon has been in Financial Services  for over two decades and after working in an IFA office for a number of years decided to set up his own Practice in January 2017.  Leon has a passion for helping clients achieve their goals through sensible financial planning, his great satisfaction is to see the original goals and objectives they set together being met, or even exceeded, over time.  Furthermore, Leon believes the majority of UK adults would benefit from seeking professional, face to face financial advice, in order to protect what they have today and plan what they would like to achieve in their future.

Leon is a proud father and has a son and a daughter which tend to take up a lot of his free time.

Gemma Homer

My role is to provide administration support to ensure the investments you make are processed smoothly and in a time efficient manner.  I also offer support for any administration queries that arise.  I have worked for St. James’s Place for 12 years and have spent many years in the Client Services department where I dealt with a variety of client queries.  I feel that providing an excellent customer service is extremely important.

In my spare time, I spend time with my family. I have 3 children who certainly keep me busy but I try to get some down time to myself to recharge my batteries.  We also plan to see more of the world so slotting in some weekends away is definitely in the long term plan.


Becky Hawthorne

Joining St James’s Place in 2020, I provide administration support to the team. I enjoy working with a professional team that are all focused on improving the client experience.

I have come from a background of customer service and I have a wealth of experience in retail, education, telecommunications and financial sectors.

Outside of work I love to spend time with my family and friends.  I am a keen gardener and I have also taken on a self-build project which keeps me busy.
