Conservative party life peeress Baroness Wheatcroft will take on a more detailed non-executive position with St James’s Place that will see her overlook workforce engagement.

SJP chief executive Andrew Croft, managing director Ian Gascoigne, chief financial officer Craig Gentle and senior independent non-executive Roger Yates will also remain on the board.
Minutes from the meetings also show the directors voted in favour of re-appointing PwC as official auditors.

The firm also recently passed the 4,000 mark for qualified financial planners, confirming it as the country’s largest adviser, employing one in every six in the UK.
