St James's Place and the oxygen of publicity

By Chris Bailey of Financial Orbit | Sunday 2 February 2020

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

The oxygen of publicity should never, ever be underestimated. As I noted here, after all the bad headlines and challenges associated with high fees and a dodgy self-serving corporate culture, 'there is only one way out of all of this for St James's Place and that is a root-and-branch business change which is driven by key managers at the top'.  Well finally we might be seeing this.
