Ovie Onomakpome


Ovie Onomakpome

I studied at Durham University, then obtained my Masters from Cranfield University. I moved from the retail industry to the financial services industry, working most recently for the Lloyds Banking Group.

My journey to St. James’s Place has been serendipitous, some may even call it destiny.

I am a Fellow with the Chartered Insurance Institute, after having gone beyond the Chartered, gold standard of Financial Advice in 2019.

My main focus is helping individuals achieve their financial goals and aspirations, whilst making a social impact on the global communities of individuals less fortunate than ourselves.
