Jonathan Ritterband

I am an Independent Chartered Financial Planner and specialise in planning-led investment strategies.

I help clients at a number of different stages in their personal and financial lives, from city professionals who are building their wealth to families that have accumulated a significant estate and are planning for retirement or looking to pass assets on to the next generation.

I have a background in Private Banking where I specialised in working with entrepreneurs at different phases of their business cycles.

I joined The Private Office in 2014, as an Adviser from Lloyds Private Bank where I primarily worked as an Investment Manager. I was promoted to Partner in September 2018 and in 2019 I was named in the Private Asset Management (PAM) Top 40 under 40.

I am passionate about providing clients with robust financial plans, which give them the clarity needed to make informed decisions, I was a leading voice in the design and implementation of the company-wide charging model of fixed fees for advice. I believe a planning-led advisory service leads to superior investment outcomes for clients and their families.

I graduated from Loughborough University with an honours degree in Economics, later achieving Chartered Financial Planner status and qualifying with the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investments to level 6 (PCIAM).

Advice Spotlight 

I recently recommended a retirement plan to a high earning professional, which simply explained, how future savings should be structured to enable financial independence, 7 years earlier than originally perceived. Achieving clarity on the ‘magic number’ can now enable this client to make important retirement decisions.

What people say about me

November 2018, Suffolk

He grasped immediately what my concerns were, he carefully worked out a financial plan that would cope with my short term needs, whilst planning for my future ones. He explained things in a way in which I could understand them, never having had any prior experience in this sort of thing.

I can’t think of anything Jon could have done better. He’s always taken great care to help us understand our financial situation fully, has taken time to advise on other business matters and has even given me very valuable informal advice when I’ve approached him.
