Michael Colyer VR, MA, MBA, FCA, FPFS, FCSI, CFPTM ,TEP - Principal of Colyer Associates

As a Senior Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management and the Principal of Colyer Associates, my emphasis is on ensuring that we build long-term relationships with our clients and provide them with a source of trusted advice as their financial needs and objectives evolve. 


My team and myself are based in Yorkshire close to the glorious North Yorkshire Moors with clients locally in Yorkshire, London and across the UK. 

Our philosophy is simple and that is to provide financial peace of mind for you and those closest to you. We will provide a highly personalised service with the aim of earning the right to be your trusted financial adviser. We will help you make informed financial decisions aiming to achieve your goals through a personal face to face wealth management service. 

I am a Chartered Financial Planner with a diverse background borne through a career spanning financial services, industry, accountancy practice and the armed forces. I am amongst the highest qualified financial advisers in the UK, being a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society, a Chartered Wealth Manager, and a Chartered Accountant (not practising). I am one of only a few financial advisers in the UK with full membership of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners. My first degree was awarded by Cambridge University, and I am also a MBA graduate. Additionally, to ensure that I can assist when difficult decisions are required, I am also a member of SOLLA (Society of Later Life Advisers) qualified to provide specialist advice to those who are, or about to go into, long term care.

Out of the office I have an interesting array of interests and hobbies. I am a keen cyclist having undertaken several long-distance challenges for the St. James's Place Charitable Foundation. During my regular service in the Royal Navy, I made ship life a little more interesting through learning unicycling, juggling and some close-up magic skills, all of which prove popular at social events!


Prestigious industry status recognises the value I place on my development and gives clients the confidence that they are supported by one of the UK’s leading wealth professionals.
