St Jacques Vikings praise Network for helping the club to grow

St Jacques Vikings, sponsored by Network Insurance & Financial Planning, have their first home game of the season this Saturday, against Gosport & Fareham 2nds.

Network has sponsored St Jacques for many seasons, and the club says our support both on and off the pitch has been hugely important in the growth of the club, which has developed into a serious, competitive rugby team.

St Jacques Vikings now have more than 50 players, an excellent coaching & management team, and a strong supporter base. 

‘Network’s support has enabled us to not just just develop the club, but also develop many young players, which is at the centre of the club’s ethos,’ said James Mroch, the club’s commercial, sponsorship & marketing manager.

‘Many of our former players have gone on to play at much higher levels. The support of Network definitely helped make that happen.’

St Jacques Vikings got their first season in the newly created Counties 3 Hampshire league off to a storming start with a 78-12 victory over Fareham Heathens in their first game of the season, and a massive 107-0 win again Portsmouth 2nds at the weekend. 

Following the Rugby Football Union’s decision to restructure the English clubs championship from this season, the Vikings find themselves competing with Hampshire-based clubs as they seek to climb the English rugby pyramid.

Ollie Goater of Network said: ‘We are very proud sponsors of St Jacques Vikings and wish them all the very best for the season ahead. It’s fantastic to see how they’ve grown in recent years, and we look forward to seeing their success unfold in this new league.’

For most of us, retirement seems very far away, so it’s understandable that many leave their pensions with the assumption they’re doing what they need to. While I fully understand the reasons for neglecting them - my own personal to do list is also often ignored in favour of the numerous urgent demands from children and work, and the general juggle of life - pensions are something that should be prioritised and not ignored.

It’s a (wo)man’s world!

It may surprise readers to hear that even in 2023, the financial advice industry is still very much a male-dominated industry. Despite this, it’s a great profession for women too and the diverse skills we bring can actually be an advantage in this game.

Cyber insurance - does your business value its reputation?

Cyber Risk is one of the hot topics of the moment and continues its inexorable rise up the list of concerns for businesses worldwide. You only need to watch the news to know the risk of cyber threats is greater than ever before. These high profile attacks, like the recent attack on the NHS, underline how important it is for businesses to take their cyber security seriously.

I want to retire... can I?

Up until relatively recently, retirement ages were viewed as a fixed date with people working towards a specific age (and even day) their entire working life. Is the norm about to change?
