Chris Jones, MRUFC, Forwards and Wealth Management Consultant

After a rugby career with Sale, Worcester, Leeds and England, I have joined the Macc Rugby coaching team as a Forwards’ Consultant Coach.

I have been fortunate to have had a great rugby career, starting with Sale Sharks and finishing at Leeds Carnegie in 2016. After playing for England Saxons in 2001 and 2002; in 2004 I was proud to get selected to play for Clive Woodward’s England team, with most of the World Cup winning side, the highlight of which, was scoring a try on my debut against Italy. Getting 12 caps along the way, there was a very special moment in New Zealand, facing up the Haka in a pitch-black stadium before playing against the All Blacks. As a lineout specialist, I hope to bring some of my experience to assist the coaching team at Macclesfield in honing the lad’s execution.

Since retiring from the playing side, I have retrained as a financial adviser with the St. James’s Place Academy, which I am most passionate about, and hope that I can help the membership with their personal/business financial needs.

St. James’s Place Wealth Management has in excess of £143billion of client funds under management, providing a range of wealth management solutions from investments to pensions. I am offering members a personal and tailored, face-to-face service that utilises an unrivalled portfolio of products and services.

As an advisor at Swiftsure Wealth Management at St. James’s Place, I can offer an integrated tailored service or one-off services within our product portfolios covering: Investment Wealth, Pension Planning, Protection (Insurance and Inheritance Tax) and Banking and Mortgages.

I am planning, in conjunction with Macc Rugby Club to be a guest speaker at our international game days…….watch this space!

Please don’t hesitate in giving me a call or dropping me a line for a heads-up on anything that you might be interested in; or a tap on the shoulder if you catch me down at the Club.
