Together We’ll Prosper

I founded Sovereign Wealth in 2009 with the ethos of ‘Together We’ll Prosper’. This is based on my belief that by bringing together the right blend of talented individuals and adopting a collaborative approach – with clients’ needs always foremost – we can provide a best-in-class wealth management service.

Charles Mardon

Chief Executive Officer


Driven to deliver the best Wealth Management service in the country

I have never been a person to set small goals, so my objective, simply, has been to build the strongest, most effective wealth management business in the country.

To achieve this, I have a vision that ‘Together We’ll Prosper’. This is a founding principle based on my belief that teamwork, collaboration and mutual respect are key ingredients for success.

As Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Sovereign Wealth, I have overseen the business’s growth for over 15 years while also caring for my own personal clients’ financial planning. The rapid growth and expansion of the business is a testament to the hard work and commitment that the entire team puts in every day across the UK and Hong Kong.

While I am proud of the many milestones we have achieved as a business on our journey, I am more driven by the results we achieve for our clients. That is the true reflection of our success – providing the means to prosperity and financial security for our thousands of valued clients both in the UK and worldwide. 


A plan to achieve your goals

From day one, I have always placed great emphasis on building personal relationships with my clients. I do not provide any off-the-shelf solutions, and all areas of our service are carefully planned according to each client’s unique needs.

We help clients in all areas of wealth management and financial planning, and true to our founding principle of ‘Together We’ll Prosper’, we always make sure that even if we can’t help a prospective client, we do our utmost to help and point them in the right direction.

Our process is by no means a rigid system. Instead, we work with our clients on their own terms. However, every plan features some key components that help to achieve success:

  • Firstly, getting to know you and gaining an insight into your goals is critical.
  • We develop a comprehensive strategy that meets your objectives.
  • We design the plan and explain it in plain English, with no waffle or jargon, making sure you are completely happy.
  • The plan is then implemented with efficiency and diligence, keeping you fully informed at each stage.
  • We continue building our relationship by regularly reviewing your plan together, and adapting it as your circumstances change.



Powering your future

It isn’t the amount of wealth that matters most, it’s what you do with it that counts.

With our help, your wealth becomes the fuel that powers your future – a means of enjoying the life you want and looking after those you love. Whatever your goals and wherever you are in life, we build a financial plan that’s fit for the weeks, months and years ahead.

Effective planning to create the future you want.

What will your future be like? It can be easy to think of the future as being unknowable, but planning ahead can smooth out many of the uncertainties and help your goals and aspirations become reality. When we work with you, we always encourage you to consider the future you want – and then we help make it happen.

Planning helps you…

  • Identify goals and aspirations
  • Make important decisions today
  • Look after those you love
  • Look forward to the future with confidence

A sound investment in your future.

Investing for the future is fundamental to most people’s financial plans, but understanding how, why and what to invest in requires specialist expertise. We understand that your ideal investment strategy depends on many factors, but by getting to know your reasons for investing and your attitude to risk, we can give you the comprehensive advice you need.

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.

Our investment planning helps you…

  • Understand your investment options
  • Spread your investments across the most appropriate assets
  • Make the right choices for you and your family
  • Build a balanced, diversified investment solution

Preparing for a richer retirement.

Most people like to look ahead to an enjoyable retirement. For many, it represents the stage of life that will give them time and space to pursue their personal passions. But it takes planning to achieve the retirement you want, and not everyone has the foresight to make the right choices today.

Retirement planning helps you…

  • Prepare for the future you want
  • Optimise your financial arrangements today
  • Plan for life’s ups and downs
  • Look forward to retirement with confidence

Protection for you and your loved ones.

We can’t see into the future, but we can help you plan for events that might happen and that could have a major impact on you, your family and your wealth. By understanding your situation in detail, we can help protect you from life’s many storms, both minor and major.

Protection planning helps you…

  • Prepare for life’s uncertain events
  • Protect your wealth from excessive tax liabilities
  • Shield your income from the impact of illness
  • Protect your loved ones if anything happens to you

Although you may have firm ideas about who will benefit from your wealth in the event of your death, making sure your intentions are carried out smoothly can be complex.

All kinds of events can end up knocking your plans off course, and it takes expert advice to make sure your wealth is protected for future generations.

Our team guides you through the process of planning the legacy you will one day leave behind. We consider the effects of inheritance tax and the possibility of unexpected events, making sure your wealth is retained and protected for those you love.

The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.

Legacy Planning helps you…

  • Make sure your wealth is passed on in the way you want
  • Minimise inheritance tax and capital gains tax
  • Create a legacy that passes to multiple generations
  • Protect your estate and assets

A firm financial footing for your business.

Running a business is hard work and it’s important to ensure your hard work is creating financial security. You and your employees all rely on your business, and taking steps to secure its financial future is all part of being successful at what you do.

Financial planning for your business helps you…

  • Secure your business’s financial future
  • Look after your finances and those of your employees
  • Build a stronger, healthier business
  • Feel confident that your business is well prepared for success
